Next to Normal,
with music by Tom Kitt and book and lyrics by Brian Yorkey
at Island ETC (East-End Theatre Company)
March 17th- April 08,2017

This ‘feel everything’ rock musical has earned accolades around the world for it tender, insightful, and funny portrayal of a family trying bravely to come to terms with life, love, and loss.

NEXT TO NORMAL is about the seemingly perfect Goodman family. Their only problem is that sometimes mother Diana seems just a little too happy. Her husband Dan worries all the time. Their daughter Natalie is intent on getting a scholarship to Yale and leaving home.

And their son Gabe, well…that’s another story entirely.

Classical Theatre Presents The Ghost Sonata

Classical Theatre Company presents Strindberg’s rarely produced final play, the supernatural drama,
The Ghost Sonata
ny August Strindberg
February 8 – February 26, 2017.


Following 2012’s production of Miss Julie, Classical Theatre Company will produce its second play by the Swedish great August Strindberg in The Ghost Sonata.

This dark examination of family was originally produced in 1908 and has disturbed audiences ever since.

“Strindberg had a very unhappy family life – particularly his childhood. This play was his attempt to exorcise those ghosts through this supernatural drama,” says CTC chief John Johnston. “We’re excited to bring this rarely produced play to our Houston audiences. We’ve done a good job over the years in exposing our audiences to age-old plays that they’ve never seen on stage before. Most theatergoers are familiar with his other plays like Miss Julie, The Father, or A Dream Play, but The Ghost Sonata was his last great play, and perhaps his most overlooked.”
