Baum and Chambers Lead BRT's NEXT TO NORMAL to Artistic Heights, Both Expected and UnexpectedBaum and Chambers Lead BRT's NEXT TO NORMAL to Artistic Heights, Both Expected and Unexpected
by Jeffrey Ellis - May 27, 2012

In fact, in the retrospect afforded me by twelve hours, I have to admit that the production's most revelatory performance is delivered by Mike Baum, as the long-suffering and beleaguered Dan Goodman, Diana's stalwart and steadfast husband. That doesn't mean Chambers' performance is anything less than the spectacular onstage turn that it is-but, truth be told, it was expected from her. When word of her casting became publicly known, it is safe to say that 99% of the theater-going public (and actors themselves) agreed that Chambers' casting was indeed perfect. And she delivers exactly what we all hoped for, showing off the versatility, the confidence and the presence that has long identified her as one of the very best to be found onstage. (more...)
