An emotional powerhouse of a musical, Next to Normal features a compelling Tony Award-winning pop rock score that shatters through the façade of a suburban family dealing with the traumatic effects of mental illness. Winner of three Tony Awards and the 2010 Pulitzer Prize for Drama, this intense, emotional, yet ultimately hopeful musical makes a direct grab for the heart with a story that takes us inside the lives of a typical American family that’s anything but typical. The New York Times said “NEXT TO NORMAL is a brave, breathtaking musical...It is something much more than a feel-good musical. It is a feel-everything musical.” Contains strong language and themes.
