I watched this show, prepared to be impressed and blown away but what I did not expect was the amount of tears I would shed at this play. I literally had tears falling down my face at certain parts of the musical and I could feel what the characters were feeling.
I was the Mom longing for her son ... I was the daughter, wanting to be noticed ... I was the husband, loving and not knowing if I would be loved again ... I was the son, wanting to be real but could never be.
There was a line in the play that went like this.
I don't want normal coz normal is too far away. I just want something next to normal.I want someone to be there for me. I want something that is next to normal. because normal is not something that exists in my world. I'm bipolar and the guy has to accept that about me and have infinite patience.
I am the one who knows you
I am the one who cares
I am the one who's always been there
I am the one who's helped you
And if you think that I just don't give a damn
Then you just don't know who I am
I chanced upon a co-dancer. It seems we also share a love for musicals. Here's to us and for something that is next to normal.
