The Arkansas Repertory Theatre took its production of "Next to Normal" on the road for a string of performances in Kansas City.

The show earned rave reviews here in Little Rock, and the Kansas City Star had some very nice things to say about it as well.

Robert Trussell wrote that "Director Nicole Capri guides an exceptionally talented cast through the material with a simple, economical style." He praised the lighting and set design as well.

"If this production is typical of the quality enjoyed by theatergoers in Little Rock, then we should hope for more visits from the Arkansas Rep," he wrote.

The show runs at the Kauffman Center for the Performing Arts through June 10.
