The landmark musical Next to Normal premiered in 2009 on Broadway – winning three Tony Awards – and is an unflinching tale of an ordinary family trying to deal with the effects of mental illness. It is an emotional powerhouse.
With over 30 brilliant songs from soul-soaring rock to heart-warming ballads, Next to Normal tells the story of suburban housewife Diana, struggling to come to terms with her son’s death. It explores issues of grief, suicide, drug abuse, ethics in modern psychiatry and the underbelly of suburban life with love, sympathy and heart.
