‘Next to Normal’ transfers to the West End

The Donmar Warehouse production of the Broadway musical Next to Normal is to transfer to London’s West End.

It will begin performances at Wyndham’s Theatre on Tuesday 18 June 2024 for a strictly limited 14-week season. The production sold every seat at every performance across its season at Donmar Warehouse, where the production made its long-awaited UK Premiere.

Stateside Next to Normal went on to win three Tony Awards, including Best Original Score, as well as the Pulitzer Prize for Drama, one of only ten musicals in history to receive the prestigious honour.

Next To Normal is an intimate exploration of family and illness, loss and grief. At its heart is Diana Goodman, a suburban wife and mother living with bipolar disorder and haunted by her past. Donmar Artistic Director Michael Longhurst directs this powerful rock musical.

Michael Longhurst Artistic Director of the Donmar Warehouse:

“Some stories pierce the heart of the human condition: Tom and Brian’s astonishing musical does just that – facing our deepest vulnerabilities whilst celebrating our capacity to endure. The outpouring of emotion from audiences at the Donmar was incredible: you could hear audible sobs before they surged to their feet every single night – like nothing I’ve experienced. Tickets were impossible to come by, so I am beyond thrilled that more people will now be able to experience the work of this extraordinary creative team.”

The creative team is led by Tony, Emmy and Grammy Award-winning composer Tom Kitt and Pulitzer Prize and Tony Award-winning writer Brian Yorkey. Tickets go on priority on sale on Monday 27 November – sign up at www.nexttonormal.com. General on sale is Friday 1 December.
