Giveaway: TheatreSquared’s ‘Next to Normal’

Another show, more raves from local audiences.

These days, it seems like TheatreSquared has made a routine out of taking some of the most interesting and compelling shows in the theatre world, and proceeding to knock them out of the park here in Fayetteville.

The latest show is the company’s first-ever Broadway musical, the Tony-Award winning, Pulitzer Prize-winning “emotional powerhouse of a musical about a family trying to take care of themselves and each other.”

Our reviewer Tobias Wray called it “the season’s glittering gemstone,” “spectacularly sung” and “best of its breed, in a class with only a few gritty peers.”

So, yeah, it’s supposed to be pretty good. Also, as you may have figured out, we’ve got two pairs of tickets to give away to the closing night performance at 7 p.m. Sunday, May 12. Try to win ’em.
