ABOUT
THE SHOW

Nominated for 4 Olivier Awards including BEST NEW MUSICAL, the critically acclaimed, sold-out Donmar Warehouse production of Next to Normal comes to London’s West End for a strictly limited season at Wyndham’s Theatre from 18 June 2024.

When this landmark musical debuted on Broadway in 2010, it won 3 Tony Awards and the Pulitzer Prize for Drama – one of only ten musicals in history to receive this prestigious honour. A ground-breaking and intimate portrait of a modern family,
Next to Normal “tears at the heart in a way few musicals manage” (Attitude)

Next to Normal is an intimate exploration of family and illness, loss and grief. At its heart is Diana Goodman (Caissie Levy in an Olivier Award-nominated performance), a suburban wife and mother living with bipolar disorder and haunted by her past.

“As staged afresh in London under the astute eye of director Michael Longhurst,
Next to Normal has a renewed sting. The result is transformative…there’s no more vital theatrical place to be.” Matt Wolf, The New York Times Critic’s Pick

Next To Normal features a thrilling and original rock score by Pulitzer, Tony, Emmy and Grammy Award winner Tom Kitt and book and lyrics by Pulitzer Prize and Tony Award winner Brian Yorkey. Starring alongside Levy (who originated the role of Elsa in Frozen on Broadway) are Olivier Award-winner Jamie Parker (The Crown, Harry Potter and the Cursed Child), Jack Wolfe (Netflix’s Shadow & Bone and winner of the UK Critic’s Circle and WhatsOnStage Awards for Next to Normal), Olivier Award winner Eleanor Worthington-Cox (BAFTA nominated for The Enfield Haunting, Matilda), Trevor Dion Nicholas (Aladdin) and Jack Ofrecio.

Award-winning Michael Longhurst directs this brilliant new production that the
Sunday Express calls “electrifying, heart wrenching and profoundly human.”

Please note: This production contains some adult topics, including depictions of various mental health conditions and disorders, themes of bereavement, and strong language.

THE trailer

Diana, played by Caissie Levy, wearing a long-sleeved gray jacket staring to our right with a black background.
Diana, played by Caissie Levy, wearing a white uniform with dark circular patterns. She is kneeling one on leg looking towards the audience. There is a drumset which is being played by a drummer, a keyboard, and more instruments covering the entire background.
Dan, played by Jamie Parker, is standing behind a seated Henry, played by Jack Ofrecio, with a wide smile and animated expression. Dan is placing his hands on Henry's shoulders. Henry is wearing a plaid shirt and appears to be listening. In the background, Diana, played by Caissie Levy, in a white shirt and Gabe, played by Jack Wolfe, in a brown hoodie are busy in the kitchen, with Diana holding a cup. The setting is a modern kitchen with a wooden staircase and open shelves.
Henry, played by Jack Ofrecio, and Natalie, played by Eleanor Worthington-Cox, are dancing energetically in a dimly lit setting with colorful lights. Natalie has long blonde hair that is swinging wildly as she dances, and she is wearing a white t-shirt and high-waisted short jeans. Henry, wearing a yellow t-shirt with a colorful design, has his arms raised in the air. Both appear to be enjoying the music and the moment, with a backdrop of neon lights and a dark interior, suggesting a party atmosphere.
Natalie, played by Eleanor Worthington-Cox, sits pensively on a staircase, illuminated by blue and green lights. She has long, wavy blonde hair and is wearing a dark, oversized sweater. She has a thoughtful, distant expression on her face. The setting appears to be modern and slightly industrial, with metal railings and a blurred background that includes various objects, creating a moody and introspective atmosphere.
Henry, played by Jack Ofrecio, and Natalie, played by Eleanor Worthington-Cox, are sitting on a staircase, engaged in a conversation. Henry is holding an apple and speaking, while Natalie, with her hair tied up in a bun and wearing a dark sweater, leans on the railing and listens intently. The setting is dimly lit, with a modern, industrial-style staircase in the background.
Gabe, played by Jack Wolfe, stands alone in front of a staircase, looking thoughtful and serious. He is wearing a layered outfit with a long-sleeve shirt under a t-shirt. The background features a modern, industrial-style staircase and vivid, fiery lighting effects, giving the scene an intense and dramatic atmosphere. Musical instruments and equipment are visible on the upper level.
Dan, played by Jamie Parker, and Diana, played by Caissie Levy, stand facing each other in a tender moment. Dan is wearing a dark shirt holding a clipboard with his left hand, while Diana is dressed in a patterned hospital gown. They are holding each other gently, with Dan's hands on the Diana's hips and Diana's hand on the Dan's chest. The background features a dimly lit room with modern decor, including a floor lamp and plants, creating an intimate and emotional atmosphere.
A dynamic scene unfolds in a modern, multi-level room. Gabe, played by Jack Wolfe, stands on a kitchen island, passionately singing into a microphone with dramatic lighting effects on the walls. Below, Dan, played by Jamie Parker, crouches on the floor, looking pensive and surrounded by scattered personal belongings and cardboard boxes. The upper level features a band performing, adding to the intense and energetic atmosphere. A staircase on the right connects the levels, and the setting is cluttered, emphasizing the chaotic yet artistic environment.
Gabe, played by Jack Wolfe, sits on the floor, hugging his knees to his chest. He is dressed in a layered outfit with a long-sleeve shirt under a t-shirt, and he has a serious, contemplative expression on his face. The background is dimly lit, with a blurred lamp and other indistinct objects, creating a somber and introspective mood.
Dr. Madden/Dr. Fine, played by Trevor Dion Nicholas, and Diana, played by Caissie Levy, are engaged in a tense confrontation in a modern kitchen setting. Dr. Madden/Dr. Fine, wearing a light pink shirt and gray pants, stands aggressively with his arms outstretched and his mouth open, appearing to shout. He has his leg raised and his left foot is on the chair's arm where Diana is sitting. Diana, dressed in a white t-shirt and blue jeans, is seated in a swivel chair, leaning back with a fearful expression. The background includes a staircase and kitchen cabinetry, adding to the dramatic and intense atmosphere of the scene.
Dr. Madden/Dr. Fine, played by Trevor Dion Nicholas, sits comfortably in a chair, holding a small tray with several prescription pill bottles. He is dressed in a tweed jacket and tie, with his legs crossed and one hand raised, as if making a point or gesture. His expression is calm and composed, and the setting appears professional. The lighting focuses on him, highlighting the seriousness of the moment.
