Revisit the Bates Motel with WE NEED TO TALK ABOUT NORMAN: A PSYCHO MUSICAL
Bates Motel is open again for business in We Need To Talk About Norman: A Psycho Musical, debuting Friday, August 17th at LA's historic El Cid. Adapted by Jordan Ross (Cruel Intentions: The Musical, The Unauthorized OC Musical, Jennifer's Body: The Unauthorized Musical From Hell) and directed by Joey Bybee, this campy, unauthorized, 8-track re-imagining of Alfred Hitchcock's horror masterpiece returns audiences to that forgotten stretch of highway in Fairvale, California except instead of 1960, it's 1985. Featuring songs from Bonnie Tyler, Cutting Crew, Crowded House and more, join Norman and his knife-happy mother as they try to keep their business afloat and family together... by any means necessary.
The musical will star Lindsay Pearce (Glee, Recovery Road, For The Record: Baz Luhrmann), Graham Kurtz (The New Adventures of Peter and Wendy), Gwen Hollander (Future Man), Trent Mills (Evil Dead: The Musical, North American Tour, After Hours Theatre Co's One Flew Over The Cuckoo's Nest), and Ryan Sutton Stevens (Jennifer's Body: The Unauthorized Musical From Hell).
We Need To Talk About Norman: A Psycho Musical is presented by El Cid with Artistic Producer, Joey Bybee.
