Next to Normal

High Ethical Standards and Shameless Plug

 Seeing as how I have a conflict of interest due to the fact that my son is in the orchestra (cellist) of the new Broadway musical, Next to Normal at the Booth Theater (book and lyrics by Brian Yorkey and music by Tom Kitt), my high ethical standards preclude me from publishing a less than totally objective review…I am not beneath a shamelss plug however, so the link below is a video made during the recent recording of the cast album and features snipets of the songs and story plus interviews with the creative team and actors. It’s a large file a may take a moment to load, but it’s worth it. Enjoy.

Ben was on tour with Duncan Sheik when the recording was made and thus does not appear on the album or video
