ABOUT THE SHOW
Next to Normal is a powerful rock musical that digs into the lives of a fragmented family grappling with crisis and loss. The story centers around a mother who struggles with worsening bipolar disorder and the effects that her illness and its management have had on her family. This musical’s graceful, brutally honest, yet humorous handling of grief, mental illness, and ethics in modern psychiatry has expanded the scope of theatrical subject matter and transformed the possibilities of the American musical. Winner of three 2009 Tony Awards, including Best Musical Score and the 2010 Pulitzer Prize.
