Anyway, here, courtesy of Playbill Online, are some production photos of Next to Normal: et musikalen, as well as two clips from a concert version done earlier. YouTube also had a clip of the Norwegian Gabe recording "I'm Alive." It is cool to hear the familiar music in an unfamiliar language, and to hear an audience laugh at the same things! It is also interesting to see a new design take on the show, with some familiar elements, and some brand new.
It is most gratifying, as a fan, to see that the power and beauty of the show translates and transcends any language and/or cultural barriers.
"Just Another Day"
"I Miss the Mountains"
The cast includes Heidi Gjermundsen Broch as Diana, Jon Bleiklie Devik as Dan, Frank Kjosås as Gabe, Charlotte Frogner as Natalie, Thomas Bye as Henry and Lasse Kolsrud as Dr. Fine/Dr. Madden. The production opened September 3 at Oslo's Det Norske Teatret and plays through December 22.
