Next to Normal Replaces Hands on a Hardbody for Fall 2019 Musical
Due to our loss of incredible choreographer Jeremy Urann back to his home state of Washington, director Ruth Mandsager and her team have had to make a change with regards to their plans for the Majestic Fall 2019 musical. With the heavy reliance on dance in Hands on a Hardbody and less than a year to go before opening night, the team elected to shift to their back up show: the critically acclaimed, Pulitzer winning, and Tony bedecked Next to Normal.
Per publisher Music Theatre International, “this deeply moving piece of theatre provides a wonderful opportunity for performers to explore dramatic material and showcase vocal talents with an energetic pop/rock score. Next to Normal is an emotional powerhouse that addresses such issues as grieving a loss, ethics in modern psychiatry, and suburban life.”
While we’re sad to miss out on the joys that Hands on a Hardbody would have brought us, we’re excited to welcome this poignant, timely show to the 2019-2020 Majestic season.
