I am so excited to open this show on Sept 11th!
This riveting musical won three Tony Awards in 2009 and the Pulitzer Prize for its heartbreaking, humorous and unflinchingly authentic look at a modern family struggling with the effects of bipolar disorder. As they band together to learn how to support each other and live a life that is at least next to normal, each character’s journey is punctuated by a powerful music score. It features 30 original songs including “Just Another Day,” “You Don’t Know” and “Superboy and the Invisible Girl.”
Next to Normal is, in the words of The New York Times, “much more than a feel-good musical; it is a feel-everything musical.” Chris Jones of the Chicago Tribune said, “It has the effect of making one determine to refocus on what really is important in life, which always is the best reason of all to find time to go to the theater.”
