Winner of the 2010 Pulitzer Prize, 2009's triple Tony Award winning musical, Next to Normal, also made that year's list of best shows in both the NY and LA times, The Washington Post and Rolling Stone Magazine. With book by Brian Yorkey and music by Tom Kitt, Next to Normal derives its name from its window into the lives of an almost "normal" suburban family struggling with the effects of mental illness.
Exploring how the mom's 16 year battle with manic depression affects each character, Next to Normal's energetic pop score presents the family's story with empathy and heart, taking the audience on a powerful emotional journey through riveting dramatic material and an impressive array of vocal performances!
There will be a post show "talk back" with the cast following each of the matinees on Sunday (June 9th and June 16th)
