Next to Normal


Friday, June 19, 2009

"Next to Normal" was Broadway’s sleeper hit this season. Alice Ripley, who won a Tony for her role as a bipolar suburban mom, performs a song from the show. And Kurt asks composer Tom Kitt what he had to do to get the disorder right.

THANKS for the nicely done, engaging and informative "Next to Normal" segment. It would have been nice to have had interviews with an articulate bipolar expert and patients and family members coupled to this segment -- or at least an on line guide to information about the disorder.

Suggestion for the future: What might the stories of other disorders look like on the stage?
