With Jack Thorne’s When Winston Went to War with the Wireless currently running at the theatre, Donmar Warehouse Artistic Director Michael Longhurst and Executive Director Henny Finch today announce full casting for the Pulitzer Prize and Tony Award-winning musical Next To Normal.
Joining the previously announced Grammy Award nominee Caissie Levy and Trevor Dion Nicholas, Michael Longhurst directs Jack Ofrecio, Olivier Award winner and Tony Award nominee Jamie Parker, Jack Wolfe and Olivier Award winner and BAFTA nominee Eleanor Worthington-Cox. The production opens on 22 August, with previews from 12 August, and runs until 7 October.
Critically acclaimed Broadway musical Next to Normal is an intimate exploration of family and loss. At its heart is Diana Goodman, a suburban wife and mother living with bipolar disorder and haunted by her past. Donmar Artistic Director Michael Longhurst directs the long-awaited UK première of this powerful musical about a far from average family.
Next to Normal is the winner of the 2010 Pulitzer Prize for Drama and three Tony Awards including Best Original Score.
