Next to Normal at The Citadel: More Extraordinary Than Normal
This is the kind of show that The Citadel should be doing more of. I understand the need for traditional shows that everyone can sing along to, but this kind of piece - the kind that challenges audiences both emotionally and artistically - is definitely the kind of risk the theatre should be taking. I am so glad they did and that they rose so brilliantly to the challenge. It's not easy, but if it was, it wouldn't be worth doing. This is the show to see in Edmonton this season. I have already bought tickets to see it again in two weeks.
