Next To Normal is a profoundly moving, shape-shifting, pop-rock musical for audiences who want to feel everything in one theatrical ride.
With flashes of humor, surprises, and smart lyrics that move you to the core, this contemporary musical is an unflinching portrait of the effects of mental illness on a typical American suburban family. Just how far will two parents go to keep themselves sane and their family’s world intact?
Looking past what’s seemingly normal, this brave and breathtaking musical addresses issues of ethics in modern psychiatry, grieving, loss, denial, and suburban family life. Winner of the Pulitzer Prize and three TONY Awards including Best Musical Score.
