One family is about to face the music.

Next to Normal is the story of Diana Goodman and her family. Diana has lived with bipolar depressive disorder and delusional episodes for the past seventeen years. The illness has affected everyone in her life and has nearly torn her family apart.

Winner of three 2009 Tony Awards, including Best Musical Score and the 2010 Pulitzer Prize, Next to Normal was also chosen as “one of the year’s ten best shows” by critics around the country, including The Los Angeles Times, The Washington Post, Rolling Stone and The New York Times.

“This brave, breathtaking musical [is] a feel-everything musical, which asks you, with operatic force, to discover the liberation in knowing where it hurts.” – The New York Times

“It goes beyond entertainment, reaching in and touching you to your very core in a brilliant symphony of emotional energy. Tom Kitt and Brian Yorkey’s Next to Normal is something truly magnificent.” – Broadway World
