STAGE TUBE: Sneak Peek at NEXT TO NORMAL in Milwaukee Starring Jarrod Emick & Sarah Litzsinger
The Rep's production of NEXT TO NORMAL opened December 6 at the Quadracci Powerhouse in Milwaukee.
This groundbreaking and award-winning musical explores how one suburban family copes with crisis.

The Milwaukee production features the dynamic creative team behind last season's smash-hit musical, Cabaret.
