Last night David and I made our way to the Ahmanson Theatre in downtown LA to see a performance of the touring version of the Tony and Pulitzer prize winning musical Next to Normal. Altho I first saw the show on Broadway back in August of 2009, I was really excited to be able to see the show again here in LA:
David is a huge fan of the show so he was really excited to see it again. Alice Ripley, the actress who originated the lead role on Broadway (and won a Tony award for her work), is featured in this touring cast and she is joined by a fantastic group of actors. I was really impressed with all of them, especially Emma Hunton who plays Natalie the daughter. For those of you who don’t know, Next to Normal tells the tale of a family that has to deal with a mother’s frantic bi-polar disorder. I know it doesn’t sound like the kind of fare you’d get from a stage musical but the story is not only compelling, it’s riveting and truly heartfelt. The show is here in LA until January 2, it’s a deffo must see for all Broadway musical fans.
Tonight, I’m hoping to meet up with Darion for dinner/movie/hanging out … other than that, things are gonna be pretty quite around here. I hope your Wednesday is going well!! Happy Hump Day!!
