Another fabulous virtual Broadway reunion this time with the original 2009 Broadway cast of Next To Normal is coming up on the outstanding web series Stars In The House benefiting The Actors Fund. Set your alarms for Saturday August 29th at 8pm EST.

The Broadway musical starred Alice Ripley in her Tony winning role as Diana Goodman, a wife and mother with bipolar disorder. J. Robert Spencer, original Four Season Nick Massi of Jersey Boys portrays Diana's husband Dan. Rounding out the cast of this dramatic musical included Aaron Tveit, Jennifer Damiano, Adam Chanler-Berat and Louis Hobson. The musical was driven by the incredible rock infused Tony winning score by Tom Kitt and Brian Yorkey, the latter who wrote the show's book. Shoutout also to magical vocal arranger AnnMarie Milazzo who also orchestrated Spring Awakening, If/Then and the revival of Once on This Island.

Before this weekend's special reunion on Saturday, let's have a look at 6 moments from this musical which won the 2010 Pulitzer Prize For Drama.

"I Miss The Mountains"

"You Don't Know" / "I Am The One"

"Superboy and The Invisible Girl"

"I'm Alive"

"Make Up Your Mind" / "Catch Me I'm Falling"

We also would be completely remiss if we didn't include this amazing clip of Alice Ripley taking on Aaron Tveit's character Gabe's "I'm Alive" at MCC Theater's Miscast.
