The production will run from Sept. 26 - Oct. 12. Next to Normal features book and lyrics by Brian Yorkey and music by Tom Kitt.
Here's how San Diego Music Theatre bills their production: "Pulitzer-Prize winning rock musical Next To Normal explores how one suburban household copes with crisis and mental illness. It tells the story of a mother, Diane Goodman, who struggles with bipolar disorder and the effect that her illness has on her family. This contemporary musical is an emotional powerhouse 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."
The cast features Bets Malone, Robert Townsend, Eddie Egan, Lindsay Joan, Eric Parker and Geno Carr.
