The Tony Award Winning Musical Drama

This electric musical drama will star Queenie van de Zandt in the leading role of Diana Goodman, the matriarch of a modern-day family traumatised by loss and the unpredictable effects sparked by her Bipolar diagnosis.

One of Australia’s most exciting stars of the stage, Queenie’s credits include King Kong (Global Creatures), Thoroughly Modern Millie (The Production Company), and Into The Woods (Victorian Opera) to list a few.

Next to Normal was nominated for 11 Tony Awards and won Best Original Score, Best Orchestration, following a Pulitzer Prize for Drama. With music by Tom Kitt, and Book & Lyrics by Brian Yorkey.

‘While Next to Normal had its Broadway debut in 2009, its themes of mental health and our need for connection seem even more relevant in 2022. Despite some of the darkness of the story, the musical ultimately offers us hope and light – two things we need more than ever today.’ – Mark Taylor (Director)

Next to Normal is professionally presented by James Terry Collective.
