Next to Normal

Winner of three 2009 Tony Awards, including Best Musical Score and the 2010 Pulitzer Prize.

Dad’s an architect; Mom rushes to pack lunches and pour cereal; their daughter and son are bright, wise-cracking teens, appearing to be a typical American family. And yet their lives are anything but normal because the mother has been battling manic depression for 16 years. Next to Normal takes audiences into the minds and hearts of each character, presenting their family’s story with love, sympathy and heart.

Directed by Craig Griffen with Musical Direction by Grace Johnson and Tara Oorjitham

“No show makes as direct a grab for the heart , or wrings it as thoroughly, as “Next to Normal” does. This brave, breathtaking musical focuses squarely on the pain that cripples the members of a suburban family, and never for a minute does it let you escape the anguish at the core of their lives. It is so much more than a feel-good musical, it is a feel-everything musical” –The New York Times.
