“Perhaps we will not be okay however perhaps we’re powerful and we’ll strive anyway.”

WORCESTER – Studio Theater Worcester receives a optimistic analysis for its staging of the highly effective musical, “Subsequent to Regular,” persevering with a strong 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 making an attempt to work its approach out of a tangled net of dysfunction, one woven by a foul combination of psychological sickness, distress and drugs.
