After exclusively announcing last November, that Next To Normal, the Tony Award and Pulitzer Prize winning musical, would be making its Sydney Premiere, AussieTheatre can now confirm the star-studded cast.
Today Director Tyran Parke announced the cast for their strictly limited Sydney season:
Dan – Ian Stenlake (Sea Patrol)
Diana – Michelle Doake (The Hatpin)
Dr. Fine/Dr. Madden – Bobby Fox (Jersey Boys)
Gabe – Ross Hannaford (Wicked)
Henry – Dash Kruk
Natalie – Erica Lovell (A Little Night Music)
Joining Parke, the creative team will include Kelley Abbey as Associate Director/Musical Staging and Peter Rutherford as Musical Director.
Next to Normal is compelling the story of a mother’s trauma induced depression, anxiety and delusion. It took Tom Kitt (Music) and Brian Yorkey (book and lyrics) almost a decade to create this work with extensive research, workshops, and rewrites.
