Showbiz Nation LIVE! Interview with GCP’s NEXT TO NORMAL
Director Dan Christophy and cast members Susan Christophy, Paul Young, Brittney Kelly, Bradley Searles & Bryan Faux discuss Gainesville Community Playhouse’s production of NEXT TO NORMAL.
Next To Normal is an unflinching look at how one suburban household copes with crisis and mental illness. Winner of three 2009 TONY Awards including Best Musical Score and the 2010 Pulitzer Prize. 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. And yet their lives are anything but normal, because the mother has been battling manic depression for 16 years. Next To Normal takes audiences into the minds and hearts of each character, presenting their family’s story with love, sympathy and heart.
