With provocative lyrics and a thrilling score, NEXT TO NORMAL tells the deeply intimate story of a mother who struggles with bipolar disorder and explores just how far a family will go to keep themselves sane and their world intact.
This award-winning musical broke all traditional theatrical rules by addressing such issues as grieving a loss, ethics in modern psychiatry and suburban life all within the delightful confines of an energetic pop/rock score that proves to be a true emotional powerhouse.
Next to Normal takes audiences into the minds and hearts of each character, presenting their family’s story with love, sympathy and heart.

A Please Touch Performance will take place on the final Thursday of the show’s run.
A Please Touch Performance allows patrons, through the guidance of our staff, the opportunity to walk on stage, touch props, scenery and gain a new perspective on what it takes to create theatre magic.
