This is a great story out of Vancouver where a music therapist will star in the musical, Next to Normal. Caitriona Murphy is the music therapist who portrays a character with a mental illness. She has been able to draw on her experiences as a music therapist and personal battle with bi-polar disorder to help interpret and dramatize her character. The musical itself has won a Pulitzer prize for drama and can be compared to popular musicals like Rent. I am interested to know if someone has seen it? I hope you will let us know what you thought about it.
