A Pulitzer Prize and Tony Award winning pop rock musical with soul, Next to Normal is a poignant and powerful story of loss and the struggle to survive. Driven by an incredible score, the riveting story unmasks the seemingly normal façade of a suburban family revealing a not so normal life. At the center of the family is a mother who struggles with mental illness. The effects of her illness and treatment take a great toll on the family. Next to Normal vividly dramatizes the lengths two parents will go to keep themselves "sane" and their family intact – taking audiences on an emotional journey into the minds and hearts of each character, presenting their family's story with love, sympathy and heart.
