BWW Review: NEXT TO CASI NORMALES at the Consulate General of Argentina in NYC
Next To Casi Normales is a concert featuring songs in English and Spanish from "Next to Normal" and "Casi Normales" (the Argentinian version produced in Buenos Aires in January 2012, awarded Best Musical of the season).
Members from the original cast of "Next to Normal" and "Casi Normales" got together last Thursday for a one night only concert at the Consulate General of Argenta located at 12 West 56th Street, NYC.
The evening was sponsored by GO Broadway, the prestigious school that hosts musical theater workshops in New York City. Valentina Berger, Argentine, director and founder of GO Broadway said: "Our goal is to create a link between Broadway and Argentina, giving more students and musical theater lovers an exclusive experience on Broadway."

All together, they made the night an unforgettable event for all of those who know how to enjoy the magic of New York City. The admission for this concert was free of charge like all the other shows held at the Consulate, so stay alert for upcoming shows! (You can check the Consulate's agenda HERE). Also, usually after the shows end, there is an intimate gathering with exquisite Argentinian wine for the artists and the audience to enjoy. The perfect way to end a magical night!
