Next to Normal, whose story of an American family in crisis is propelled by a contemporary rock score, opened on Broadway April 15, 2009, playing 733 performances through January 16, 2011. Tom Kitt and Brian Yorkey penned the emotional work exploring a woman's struggle with bi-polar disorder. The two earned the 2009 Tony Award for Best Score and the 2010 Pulitzer Prize for Drama.
