Since its Tony Award and Pulitzer Prize-winning Broadway debut in 2009, Next to Normal has become a popular production for regional and community theatres.



Next to Normal has a Tony Award-winning score by Tom Kitt (music) and Brian Yorkey (book and lyrics). The nearly sung-through rock musical concerns a woman struggling with bipolar disorder and depression as her family hangs in the balance.
