Weekend Arts Around Town (August 7-9)

Don’t know what to do this weekend? We’ve got a few ideas:

August 6-8
Next To Normal
The Registry Theatre
JM Drama brings to you this summer Next to Normal. A thrilling rock musical about a family that is anything but normal and yet try at all cost to maintain their ordinary facade. The show deals heavily with the theme of mental illness; as well as loss, grief, ethics and other socio-cultural issues. Next to Normal features a powerful tony award winning rock score like no other and a Pulitzer award winning script.
Performances run August 6-8 and 13-15 at 7.30PM.

August 6-9
