Tony-winning director David Cromer (The Band's Visit) directs a new production of the Tony and Pulitzer-winning musical Next to Normal at Writers Theatre in Glencoe, Illinois. The production, which opened May 15, will now conclude its run June 30, instead of the previously announced June 16.
Next to Normal is a contemporary musical that explores how one suburban household copes with crisis. With provocative lyrics and a score featuring more than 30 original songs, the musical shows how far two parents will go to keep themselves sane and their family’s world intact
The musical features music by Tom Kitt and a book and lyrics by Brian Yorkey, both of whom took home Tony Awards for the show's score. The production stars Keely Vasquez (Diana), David Schlumpf (Dan), Kyrie Courter (Natalie), Liam Oh (Gabe), Alex Levy (Henry), and Gabriel Ruiz (Dr. Madden/Dr. Fine).
