Next To Normal – MAY 10-26

Book and Lyrics by Brian Yorkey and Music by Tom Kitt

Directed by Frankie Errington

“The wasted world we thought we knew, the light would make it look brand new, so let it shine…”

Winner of three 2009 Tony Awards, including Best Musical Score and the 2010 Pulitzer Prize, Next to Normal, written by Brian Yorkey with music by Tom Kitt, introduces audiences to a seemingly typical American family. In this production directed by Frankie Errington with muscial direction by Lyndon Pugeda May 10 through May 26, the dad heads off to work as an architect, the mom prepares breakfast and lunch for the family, and the teenagers crack jokes at their parents’ expense. However, as the lights begins to shine onto their lives, the truth is illuminated, revealing the shadows of the mother’s 16-year battle with bipolar disorder and the roles each family member has had to play. Next to Normal tells a story of hope, love, and learning to let go.

Next To Normal was the most requested show on our patron survey as a write-in option, meaning people really find a need for this story,” said Burroughs. “Including it in our 2024 Season was an absolute must. I am adamant that theaters listen to their patrons and give audiences what they want, when they can do so. This show also holds a special place in my heart as it sparks conversation about mental health.”
