“Next To Normal”
Book by Tom Kitt
Music & Lyrics by Brian Yorkey
Directed by Nancy Keystone
One of the most powerful stage experiences of recent years, Next to Normal is about the seemingly picture perfect Goodman family. However, Diana, the mother, is a little too happy. Her husband Dan constantly worries. Her daughter Natalie is awfully intent on getting that scholarship to Yale. And her son Gabe, well… This Tony Award and Pulitzer Prize winning rock musical is a heartbreaking, humorous, and unflinchingly authentic look at a suburban family struggling with the effects bipolar disorder.
Set to a pulsating rock score by Tom Kitt (American Idiot) with a powerhouse female lead at its core, Next to Normal will leave you breathless.
