Next to Normal
Oct 8–Nov 16
Music by Tom Kitt
Book and Lyrics by Brian Yorkey
Directed by David Schweizer
Get up close and personal with the Pulitzer Prize-winning musical that changed everything, as Next to Normal gets a blistering new production in Center Stage’s intimate Head Theater. The story of one family’s struggle with mental illness, Next to Normal dives boldly into the gaps and crevices of our modern fragmented lives. Set to an electric score, this “brave, breathtaking musical” (The New York Times) gets right to the heart of what it means to truly miss someone.
Approximate running time is 2 hours and 15 minutes, including a 15 minute intermission.
Next to Normal features a vibrant rock score that won the 2009 Tony Award for Best Original Score and the 2008 Drama Desk Award for Outstanding Music. Listen to the original Soundtrack here.
