Judy McLane, most recently seen as Tanya in Mamma Mia!, takes on the emotional role of Diana Goodman in the Pulitzer Prize-winning musical Next to Normal alongside Alex Brightman and more at Utah's Pioneer Theatre Company. The show will run Sept. 16-Oct. 1.
The cast is rounded out by Ephie Aardema as Natalie, Alex Brightman as Henry, Ben Crawford as the Doctors, Matt Dengler as Gabe and Jonathan Rayson as Dan.
Next to Normal is a nearly sung-through rock musical that examines a woman struggling with bipolar disorder and depression, as her family strains to hold its center. It takes a candid look at prescription drug abuse, suicide, grief and the notion of what a normal American family really is.
