NEXT TO NORMAL

Book and Lyrics by Brian Yorkey

Music by Tom Kitt
Directed by M. Bevin O'Gara

Music Direction by Jonathan Goldberg

Dad’s an architect; Mom rushes to pack lunches and pour cereal; their daughter and son are bright, wise-cracking teens, appearing to be a typical American family. And yet their lives are anything but normal because the mother has been battling manic depression for 16 years. Next to Normal takes audiences into the minds and hearts of each character, presenting their family’s story with love, sympathy, and heart.
