~Normal~




~Here is the set to the musical ~Normal~on stage now at, Stage 1 Theatre Company~ Richmond Va.~
~All white walls~gray floors~windows and these happy family portraits done on plexy glass.~
~A simple set for a very emotional play.~
~The story is about a once "normal happy" family turned dysfunctional~ then their struggle to pull themselves back together, when they learn that their teenage daughter has an eating disorder.~
~Pretty heavy stuff~ and a subject that has touched many lives.~ In the end they do manage to succeed.~~"Normal is a contemporary rock musical that offers ultimate hope in an uncertain world."~~ It has been receiving excellent reviews.~
and if you are in the Richmond area~ you should see it~ But, bring tissues.~

I am ~ hopefully~ adding a clip from the play.(i have never added a video)
~Just showing you the "plain" set without the lights , the music and the actors. ~Well~ dull~
~So, watch this set come to life~ the actors in the play are incredible.~

Wow! The set is amazing! I watched the clip, I bet the show was very emotional. I have a dear friend who lost a daughter to anorexia. She struggled with it for 10 years, it is a very sad and serious affliction. Hopefully the play reached some people in a positive way. Have a great day!

Amy, anyone who can create on such a large scale has my admiration. What a wonderful cause, as well. I'm also really liking the portrait of the two children up in your new banner...on the left-hand side.

I love the art work and I'm glad the play has a happy ending. ;-) I'll have to check out the video later because I'm reading this at work.
