Studio Theater Worcester presents haunting, partaking musical inspecting psychological well being

Kevin T. Baldwin

“Possibly we won’t be okay however perhaps we’re robust and we’ll attempt anyway.”

Studio Theater Worcester receives a optimistic analysis for its staging of the highly effective musical, “Subsequent to Regular,” persevering with a stable model established by the group’s mission assertion to supply the Worcester neighborhood productions of “high-quality theatrical works.”

The musical, with guide and lyrics by Brian Yorkey and music by Tom Kitt, has been lauded as a “darkish,” miserable “and even an” angsty “musical.

It’s none of these issues (though “angsty” does deserve some consideration).

It’s extra an unambiguous musical – a blatant, trustworthy depiction of a troubled household attempting to work its means out of a tangled net of dysfunction, one woven by a nasty combination of psychological sickness, distress and drugs.
