Video: Natalie O’Donnell sings Next to Normal

The critical smash Doorstep Arts production of Next to Normal – one of the very few musicals to win a Pulitzer Prize – is coming to Sydney’s Hayes Theatre Co. And are you ready for a sneak peek?

It’s exciting to see a successful independent musical find new life, and Sydney audiences are getting ready to welcome it to the Hayes. A rock musical that manages to be both tender and completely relentless, this story of a family of crisis is soaring and poignant.

Back at the Hayes Theatre 2015 preview, Natalie O’Donnell, who is playing the lead role of Diana in the Sydney season of Next to Normal after her success in the Geelong season, sang the show’s signature song, “I Miss The Mountains.”

And now it’s online! Check out the stunning performance below and grab tickets to the show while you still can!

Next to Normal is playing at the Hayes Theatre from January 8 – February 1. For tickets and more information, visit
