Next To Normal

Next to Normal is the acclaimed, groundbreaking rock musical that “pushed Broadway in new directions.”

Set in modern suburbia, Next to Normal presents one family’s struggle to take care of themselves and each other in the face of mental illness, grief, suicide and drug abuse.

An emotional powerhouse set to a thrilling contemporary score, Next to Normal delivers equal doses of real-life anguish and divine hope.
