After Aaron Tveit posted about a special rehearsal on Friday, fans were buzzing about a Next To Normal reunion that was to take place on May 2nd. As part of Second Stage’s 37th Anniversary Gala, N2N producer David Stone (who also handles Wicked) was to be honored. “[David] made Next To Normal possible with his belief in this show,” Aaron stated on Instagram.
Alongside Alice Ripley and J. Robert (“Bobby”) Spencer, Aaron joined the stage to revisit the powerful Next To Normal number, “You Don’t Know/I Am The One.” (Sadly, no video of this performance from the event has surfaced.) Original cast members Jennifer Damiano and Adam Chanler-Berat were also in attendance, happily joining for a N2N family reunion — minus Louis Hobson, who was notably missed by his co-stars.
