Tom Kitt's Next to Normal was one of the more moving shows I saw Off-Broadway last year. Come to think of it, it's almost a year now (see last year's review here). Today it has been announced that it will be moving to Broadway at the Booth Theatre. Previews begin March 27 with an opening night on April 15. The whole Off-Broadway cast except for Brian D'Arcy James (who is currently in Shrek) will be in it. In his place for the role of Dan will be J. Robert Spencer (Jersey Boys). I hope it does well like it did Off-Broadway at Second Stage where it had a sold out run.
