Next to Normal, winner of the 2010 Pulitzer Prize for Drama and 3 Tony Awards®, is a rock musical that the New York Times called “brave,” “breathtaking,” and “a work of muscular grace and power.” Next to Normal follows a mother who struggles with worsening bipolar disorder and the wrenching affects her illness has on her family. While this emotionally rigorous show honestly portrays the pain of the mother’s mental illness, it is surprisingly hopeful. The music is vibrantly alive, and the dialogue will make you laugh through your tears. Event held at the Edgerton Center.
