Winner of 3 Tony Awards and the 2010 Pulitzer Prize for drama, Brian Yorkey and Tom Kitt’s Next to Normal has taken Broadway, and the musical world by storm over the past decade. An emotional powerhouse of a musical with a thrilling rock score, the show takes an honest look at the sometimes harsh realities of “normal” life.
A typical American family to the outside world, the Goodmans secretly struggled in their suburban home as they deal with the effects of their mother’s worsening mental health. As they navigate their changing world, they deal with the pressing contemporary issues of trauma, loss, mental health treatment, and what it means to be a family.
Making its debut at the Mac-Haydn, Next to Normal promises to be an artistic highlight of the 2022 season and is unlike anything you have seen on our stage. Trust us when we tell you, this show is not to be missed. Prepare yourself to be overwhelmed by the raw and exhilarating reality of what it means to care for yourself, and for one another.
