Next To Normal
Some days, most days actually, I am blown away with the job I get to do and the art I get to witness. Next To Normal is a musical about mental illness so it isn’t a happy “feelgood” musical like The Sound of Music but it is good, excellent actually. I had heard about it for years but never seen it or heard the music. So the morning before I was set to shoot the video for the sitzprobe (seated rehearsal – the first time the orchestra and musicians work together) I listened to the Broadway cast recording to familiarize myself with the music and the story. All I can say is that it is special, but it isn’t everyone’s cup of tea. Here are the videos I shot for Broadway By The Bay’s production.
