Pulitzer-Prize winning rock musical NEXT TO NORMAL explores how one suburban household copes with crisis and mental illness. NEXT TO NORMAL tells the story of a mother, Diana Goodman, who struggles with bipolar disorder and the effect that her illness has on her family. This contemporary musical is an emotional powerhouse that addresses such issues as grieving a loss, ethics in modern psychiatry, and suburban life. With provocative lyrics and a thrilling score, this musical shows how far two parents will go to keep themselves sane and their family’s world intact. ADULT THEME AND LANGUAGE.
“A brave, breathtaking musical. It is something much more than a feel-good musical: it is a feel-everything musical” -Ben Brantley, The New York Ties
“A hallmark of a great musical is that it can grab you, shake you and take you into its world. NEXT TO NORMAL did before- and still does. -New York Daily News
