Next to Normal, a stirring Tony Award-winning rock musical, expertly navigates the tumultuous seas of mental illness and family bonds. Captivating audiences with its poignant exploration of the Goodman family - whose mother Diana grapples with bipolar disorder - it highlights the adversity hidden within their seemingly 'normal' suburban existence. An evocative score, interspersed with humor and pathos, amplifies the emotional tenor of this powerfully authentic narrative. The play's deft handling of loss, coping, and acceptance earned it critical acclaim and a coveted Tony Award. Unflinchingly human, Next to Normal leaves audiences to ponder the imperfect reality of the human condition, resonating deeply and indelibly.
Next to Normal is presented through special arrangement with Music Theatre International (MTI). All authorized performance materials are also supplied by MTI.
