East West Players: Next to Normal


MAY 11 - JUNE 11, 2017

NEXT TO NORMAL
Music by Tom Kitt
Book and Lyrics by Brian Yorkey

One of the most powerful stage experiences of recent years, NEXT TO NOMRAL is about the seemingly picture perfect Goodman family. However, Diana, the mother, is a little too happy. Her husband Dan constantly worries. Her daughter Natalie is awfully intent on getting that scholarship to Yale. And her son Gabe, well…

This Tony Award and Pulitzer Prize winning rock musical is a heartbreaking, humorous and unflinchingly authentic look at a suburban family struggling with the effects bipolar disorder.

Set to a pulsating rock score by Tom Kitt (AMERICAN IDIOT) with a powerhouse female lead at its core, NEXT TO NORMAL will leave you breathless.

Generous support for this production is provided by the S. Mark Taper Foundation Endowment for East West Players.
