STAGE TUBE: First Look at Trailer for Singapore Premiere of NEXT TO NORMAL
The 2010 Pulitzer Prize-winning musical Next to Normal, which features a Tony Award-winning score by Tom Kitt and Brian Yorkey and a Tony-nominated book by Yorkey, will get a Singapore premiere at Pangdemonium's Drama Centre Theatre, September 5, 2013. Check out the trailer below!
NEXT TO NORMAL tells the extraordinary roller-coaster story of Diana (West End star Sally Ann Triplett - Chicago, Cabaret,Mama Mia!, among dozens of other shows), a woman battling bipolar disorder coupled with schizophrenic hallucinations; and her hapless husband Dan (Adrian Pang - Pangdemonium's Rabbit Hole, Swimming With Sharks), who fights to keep her mind stable and his family intact. Things get even more complicated when Diana defies her Doctor (Juan Jackson - Cats, The Rocky Horror Show), and resorts to desperate measures.
Diana's and Dan's struggles put a strain on their relationship with their teenage daughter Natalie (Julia Abueva - Pangdemonium's Spring Awakening), who is herself barely coping with her own growing pains and blossoming relationship with her boyfriend, Henry (Linden Furnell - Edges). Meanwhile Diana has created a superhero-like image of her son Gabe (Nathan Hartono - Pangdemonium's Spring Awakening) - who is not all that he may seem... "Normal" is not a word you'd use to describe this family.
NEXT TO NORMAL is a bold and beautiful musical that dares to deal with themes in ways that are profoundly moving and surprisingly comic, resulting in one of the most original and powerful pieces of theatre in modern times - and Pangdemonium is very excited to be producing the Singapore Premiere of this musical that is anything but normal.
