Next to Normal

Music by Tom Kitt, Book and Lyrics by Brian Yorkey

Six Foot Something Productions and The Factory / State Opera Studio (May 2012)

“On an impactful, inspired and adaptive set (David Lampard) the performers bring each scene of the show to life. Lighting (Daniel Barber) and sound (Matthew Curtis) also add to the overall feel of the production and punch home the more intense moments of the script. There are no weak links in this show and it will rightfully draw audiences back for a second or third viewing. This is the finest musical theatre produced in Adelaide for a long time.”

Miriam Keane | Krtztoff RAW

“…an outstanding production of an exciting and often moving new musical. Tom Kitt’s rocking score and Brian Yorkey’s lyrics and book tell an uncomfortably accurate tale of a modern family fractured by child loss and mental disorder. Director/Designer David Lampard has delivered an electric set and an emotion-injected production that involves audiences every step of the way.”
