Next To Normal again and again

As I posted a couple weeks ago, my favourite musical, Next To Normal, is being put on by Calgary’s most popular theatre company. As I volunteer as an usher for Theatre Calgary, I get to see the shows for free. So far I have seen Next To Normal twice already and I am going again on Sunday. I may plan on seeing it again sometime in the following week after that as well. I LOVE IT SO MUCH. The cast is amazing and the voices are phenomenal. I wish that I could video it and watch it whenever I want!

I really can’t say why I love the musical so much. The subject matter is so dark and depressing, yet I keep coming back for more. I think that the way it is performed is just so powerful that it sucks me in. There are so many highs and lows and the music is breathtaking. The show steps the line of what is appropriate for a show and it is performed in such a unique way. Reviewers are praising (here and here) the show here in Calgary. Both shows I have seen have received a well deserved standing ovation from the audience. Fantastic performances!!

Anyway, I’m happy that I am able to see it here as many times as I wanted. I feel so lucky.

    that’s pretty awesome you get to see shows for free.
    I want to see Book of Mormon on broadway or Mary Poppins. Then I’ll see Next to Normal 😛
