The Wayward Artist Launches Second Season with NEXT TO NORMAL
The Wayward Artist's inaugural season explored FAITH. Moving into our second season, the company examines the many faces of FAMILY. The Wayward Artist is proud to produce the pop/rock, hit musical Next to Normal! Join Diana Goodman and her family in their anything-but- normal suburban home. Next to Normal explores the effects of extreme loss and the tolls mental illness can have on a modern-day family. Winning both the Tony and Pulitzer Prizes, Next to Normal, is a beautiful story and wonderful score from the creators, Brian Yorkey and Tom Kitt.

The Oxford English Dictionary defines "wayward" as conforming to no fixed rule or principle of conduct; capricious, unaccountable, erratic, unpredictable, uncontrollable; Disposed to go against the wishes or advice of others, or what is proper or reasonable; intractable; self-willed; perverse. Our work is edgy. We are not afraid to push the envelope of politeness, political correctness and propriety. We don't shy away from adult content, language and mature subject matter. We are about innovation and re-invention. Wherever possible, we delight in showing our audience a mirror to challenge pride, prejudices and point-of-view.
