Normaler Than Everyone  
2nd Stage Theatre Normaler Than Everyone
 
When award-winning singer-songwriter and photographer Brian Joseph got the news that his wife had a rare and serious kind of cancer, he was stricken with the paralyzing fear that any husband and father would feel. But as an artist, his reaction was anything but normal. Normaler Than Everyone unearths both the pain and the humor of a loved one going through cancer. The show addresses small moments — making soup, lying to friends on social media, parenting — and large moments too: calling 911, bedside vigilance, medical treatment. Through his songs, writings and photographs, Joseph presents a funny and moving portrait of a cancer caregiver, enraged by soup and terrified by the specter of ghosts which is ultimately a meditation on love and mortality.

Why this play? Just Google “senior” and hit “images”. What do you get? Happy people playing outdoors in designer casual clothes and HD sunshine. Is that reality?

He must fill in the empty blackness that lies before him if he wants to bring hope back to his life and his marriage. He searches for help and stumbles on an aging wise-woman who magically blends psychology and astrology. With her guidance and the help of ancient Planets, Signs and Houses, he fills in the blackness of his future, mines the birth-marked resources buried in his horoscope, and embraces whatever may come in the last third of life.

When a down-on-his-luck Broadway producer and his mild-mannered accountant come up with a scheme to produce the most notorious flop in history, things go awry when the show is a hit.
