Weekend Watch: Next to Normal
Next to Normal
Wednesday-Saturday, Monday, Tuesday
Act Up Theatre takes on its second production of the summer when “Next to Normal” hits The Stage at Island Park, 333 4th St. S., Fargo, this week. The Tony- and Pulitzer Prize-winning musical has its young cast again tackling tough issues with a story of a mother who struggles with worsening bipolar disorder and the effect that her illness has on her family. Tickets for this 7:30 p.m. show are $20, with a discount for seniors and students. Act Up just finished up a revival of last year’s “Bare: A Pop Opera” and next heads to Scotland in August for the Fringe Festival.
