Music by Tom Kitt

Book and Lyrics by Brian Yorkey

Director: Chad Oakley

Music Director: Martín Martiarena

The Goodmans appear to be a typical American family, yet their lives are anything but normal. This family is about to face the music!

Heartbreaking, humorous and unflinchingly authentic in its examination of a suburban family and how they handle mother’s 16-year battle with bi-polar disorder, Next to Normal is a tremendously moving and intimate musical about deeply complicated and flawed human beings and takes audiences into the minds and hearts of each character, presenting their family’s story with love, sympathy and heart.

With a powerful rock music score by Tom Kitt (If/Then, American Idiot, Freaky Friday), and the winner of 3 Tony Awards and the Pulitzer Prize for Drama, 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.”

“An honest, truthful story about a family with problems but a whole lot of love for each other& beautiful, artful, deeply moving.” – Chicago Tribune
