Just Another Day

Brian Yorkey and Tom Kitt's Tony-winning musical Next To Normal finally makes its much-anticipated West End Premiere in 2024, following an electrifying, sell-out run in autumn 2023 at the Donmar Warehouse. Nominated for four Olivier Awards, including Best New Musical, make sure to grab a ticket and make your way to The Wynham's Theatre for one of the most critically acclaimed productions of the year! The production is directed by Michael Longhurst and stars Jamie Parker, (Harry Potter and The Cursed Child) Caissie Levy (Frozen) and Trevor Dion Nicholas (Hamilton)!

With challenging themes of loss and mental illness buoyed by an infectious rock score, Next To Normal is a powerful show that has become highly regarded since its 2008 Broadway premiere.

What is the story?

Following suburban mother Diana Goodman who,  traumatized by the death of her infant son, must try and control her Bipolar and keep her family together, it is a heart-achingly relatable musical that tackles difficult subjects, and how our own experiences shape our place in the world.
