Photo Flash: Old Library Theatre’s NEXT TO NORMAL Cast Meets Charlie Alterman



Fair Lawn, New Jersey, March 8, 2012 – Old Library Theatre presents a limited run of composer Tom Kitt, and book writer and lyricist Brian Yorkey's Pulitzer Prize-winning rock musical, Next to Normal (N2N), on March 9, 10, 16, 17, and 23 at 8 p.m.; and March 11, 18, and 25 at 2 p.m. at Fair Lawn Community Center (10-10 20th Street).  In anticipation of its opening night, the production's cast members had recently sat down with Charlie Alterman, N2N on Broadway's musical director and conductor, for a music rehearsal and a vocal workshop.

Debra Carozza-Lynch (Diana), Michelle Lauto (Natalie), Michael Monks (Dan), Jose Paz (Dr. Fine/Dr. Madden), Vince Ricco (Gabe), and Alan Van Antwerp (Henry) make up Old Library Theatre's N2N cast.

N2N tells the story a suburban family whose mother struggles with a bipolar disorder. With a vibrant, soulful rock score and provocative, heartfelt lyrics, N2N reveals how far two parents will go to keep themselves sane, and to keep their family intact.

The musical won three Tony Awards for Best Score, Best Orchestration and Best Performance by a Leading Actress in a Musical in 2009, and the Pulitzer Prize for Drama in 2010.

For this Bergen County's premiere of N2N, Fair Lawn's Tom Lawrence, Hackensack's Bob Russell, and Rutherford's Michele Stern direct the production, featuring Wayne's Charles Santoro's musical direction.
