A musical about mental illness that opened during a recession proved to be a popular hit and critical smash because of the genius of Tom Kitt and Brian Yorkey, the composer and lyricist of Next to Normal. The musical captured the 2010 Pulitzer Prize for Drama as well as theTony for Best Original Score, and its numbers, which ranged from frenetic rock songs to singalong musical theater pieces, were game changers on Broadway. Alice Ripley, who won a Tony for Best Actress in the show, will be on hand to sing from it as well as other works by the pair, as will Brian d'Arcy James. The "vocally superb" (Broadway.com) James, known to television audiences for his roles in Smash and The Big C, has had starring roles in the musicals Shrek, Sweet Smell of Success, The Wild Party, and others. Tony winner Idina Menzel (Wicked) currently a star of Glee on television, will add her voice to the evening. Ripley, James, and Menzel will be joined by Jennifer Damiano from the Next to Normal original cast. Michael Mayer will direct.
