NEXT TO NORMAL

Music by Tom Kitt Book and lyrics by Brian Yorkey
Directed by Julie James

This groundbreaking, award-winning musical explores how one suburban family copes with crisis. With a thrilling contemporary score, this intense, emotional drama is full of surprises and humor that aims right for the heart with its story of a woman who struggles to keep it together and the effect her bipolar disorder has on her family. Next To Normal was chosen as “one of the year’s ten best shows” by critics with major publications around the country, including The Los Angeles Times, The Washington Post, Rolling Stone and The New York Times.
