This new musical centers on what appears to be a typical American family: Dad’s an architect; Mom rushes to pack lunches and pour cereal; their daughter and son are bright, wise-cracking teens. And yet their lives are anything but normal, because the mother has been battling manic depression for 16 years. Next to Normal takes audiences into the minds and hearts of each character, presenting their family’s story with love, sympathy and heart.

Critics' Reviews

"It is much more than a feel-good musical; it is a feel everything musical. A brave, breathtaking musical!"

Review by Ben Brantley from The New York Times

"Next to Normal covers a challenging subject, no question. That it's hopeful and uplifting, not depressing, is more than a triumph—it's next to wondrous."

Review by Joe Dziemianowicz from The New York Daily News
