Next to Normal
Winner of the 2010 Pulitzer Prize for Drama and three Tony Awards including Best Musical Score, Next to Normal is a musical not to be missed. With a thrilling contemporary score, Next To Normal is an intense, emotional musical that aims right for the audience’s heart with its story of a mother struggling with bipolar disorder and the effect that her illness has on her family, coming to terms with its past and bravely facing its future. The New York Times calls Next to Normal "a brave, breathtaking musical" and Rolling Stone claims it "pushes Broadway in new directions."
Artistic Director, Brian Bzdawka, and Musical Director, Tom Reifenberg, have once again assembled a stellar cast and crew to put together this moving production of Next To Normal. Excited to showcase new faces, GCT welcomes local veteran actor, Joe Nolan, to the GCT stage and family and is thrilled to welcome back the following GCT alum to round out their powerhouse cast: Laura McDonald as Diana, Kat Geertsen as Natalie, Patrick Jones as Gabe, Ryan Stajmiger as Henry and Michael Stoddard as Dr. Madden.
Supporting the Community
In an effort to redefine “community” theater in Milwaukee, it has become a GCT tradition to select a charity for “pass the hat” donations after each show. The selected charity for GCT’s winter production is the Rogers Memorial Hospital Foundation.
