Sometimes I hate New York just because it’s so far away from me. When the Tony nominations were announced recently, I wasn’t familiar with, like, anything (except for [title of show]! but that’s a different post…). So I decided it was time to educate myself, and I listened to the Next to Normal cast recording today. IT’S AMAZING. I was sobbing by the end of it, and I was teary during the entire thing.
Next to Normal is about a family dealing with the mom’s severe bipolar disorder. She also has hallucinations, specifically of her son who died when he was a baby. It’s heartbreaking. Thankfully, the show’s website has some videos of the show, so I can share this scene:
I know what I’m rooting for come the Tonys.
