Winner of the Pulitzer Prize and three Tony Awards, “Next to Normal” is a modern musical theatre masterpiece that takes a searing and honest look at mental illness and the personal crises that accompany it. On the surface, the Goodmans seem to be a typical American family, but inside the walls of their suburban home an unspoken heartbreak threatens to tear them apart. Diana has struggled with manic depression for most of her daughter Natalie’s life, and when she suffers a major relapse, her husband Dan is ready to go to any length to get things back to “better than before.” With a powerful rock score that packs a punch, “Next to Normal” takes audiences on an emotional journey of love, loss, anguish, and hope.
Due to the nature of the material and the language, this wonderfully moving show is for mature audiences.
