Next to Normal
By Tom Kitt and Brian Yorkey
Directed by Jay Wilkins
Next to Normal, winner of the 2010 Pulitzer Prize for Drama and 3 Tony Awards, is a rock musical that the New York Times called “brave,” “breathtaking,” and “a work of muscular grace and power.”
This ground-breaking musical explores how one suburban family copes with crisis. With powerful lyrics and an electrifying pop-rock score, this intense, emotional and ultimately hopeful musical aims right for the heart with its story of a family coming to terms with its past and bravely facing its future.
