Next to Normal features book and lyrics by Brian Yorkey and music by Tom Kitt.

This contemporary musical is an emotional power-house that addresses such issues as grieving a loss, ethics in modern psychiatry, and suburban life. With provocative lyrics and a thrilling score, this musical shows how far two parents will go to keep themselves sane and their family’s world intact."
