NEXT TO NORMAL is Next Up at Casa Manana

Casa Mañana continues celebrating its 60th anniversary season, presented by Frank Kent Cadillac, with the Tony and Pulitzer Prize-winning Next to Normal. The show runs November 3-11. Tickets are on sale now.

Winner of three Tony Awards, including Best Musical Score, and the 2010 Pulitzer Prize, Next to Normal is an unflinching look at a suburban family struggling with the effects of mental illness. Dad's an architect; Mom rushes to pack lunches and pour cereal; their daughter and son are bright, wise-cracking teens, appearing to be a typical American family. With an energetic pop/rock score, Next to Normal is an emotional powerhouse that will take you into the minds and hearts of each character, presenting their family's story with love, sympathy and heart. This show is suitable for mature audiences.

Christine Sherrill stars as "Diana," Charlie Pollock as "Dan," English Bernhardt as "Natalie," Luke Steinhauer as "Gabe," Darnell Abraham as "Doctor" and Jakeim Hart as "Henry."

Next to Normal is directed by Eric Woodall with Alec Bart as music director. Additional creative members include Seth Byrum as scenic designer, David Neville as lighting designer, Eric Norris as sound designer, Tammy Spencer as costume designer and Cat Petty-Rogers as hair and makeup designer.
