Theatergoers will squirm in their seats and itch to swap notes after the curtain falls during Next to Normal, a gripping musical production that has snagged three Tony Awards and the 2010 Pulitzer Prize for Drama. It portrays a dysfunctional clan trying to stem off a looming implosion, with music by Tom Kitt and book and lyrics by Brian Yorkey.
The dramatic powerhouse revolves around a woman’s struggle with manic depression and its ravaging effects on her relatives, who hope to come to grips with their past while confronting an uncertain future. Propelled by a driving rock ’n’ roll score, the remarkable play will leave you on the edge of your seat and emotionally drained.
