Although it is not a light, toe-tapping kind of musical, NEXT TO NORMAL by Tom Kitt and Brian Yorkey however, manages to be an entertaining and thought provoking evening of theatre. It offers a peak into the lives of one family and their struggles and fears related to the mental illness of their matriarch and the damage left behind.

BWW Review: Human Race Theatre Company bats a 1000 with World Premiere of BANNED FROM BASEBALLBWW Review: Human Race Theatre Company bats a 1000 with World Premiere of BANNED FROM BASEBALL
September 11, 2018

BANNED FROM BASEBALL, the first play written by Patricia O'Hara, is making its world premiere at the Human Race. Seems fitting to be so close to the original action. O'Hara is not only a writer but also a Professor of English Literature at Franklin and Marshall College in Lancaster, Pennsylvania where she teaches a course titled, not surprisingly, Baseball in American Literature and Culture. I really liked how she was able to tell this story and keep the audience interested, even though, at least the majority of us, knew how the story ended. The play was nuanced in a way that helped you see into the minds and hearts of the major players, Pete Rose and Bart Giamatti, the Baseball Commissioner. Excellent casting brought this all to life.
