Next to Normal

About This Show

Tony Award and Pulitzer Prize Winner! From the outside, they’re just a normal family. But inside, it’s anything but. Depression, denial, grief, and love are the emotional cornerstones of this Pulitzer Prize-winning musical. Diana Goodman is a suburban mom suffering from bipolar disorder. Her mental health struggles with depression and delusional episodes have affected everyone in her family including husband Dan and daughter Natalie. Dan longs for the wife he once knew and to get his family back to “Better than Before.” Natalie tries to cope but finds herself competing with “Superboy and the Invisible Girl.” With the help of psychiatrist Dr. Madden, Diana and her family hope there’s a “Light in the Dark.” But, the meaning of “Just Another Day” is different for everyone.
