Next to Normal is a Tony Award- and Pulitzer Prize-winning rock musical with book and lyrics by Brian Yorkey and music by Tom Kitt. It’s the story of Diana who struggles with worsening bipolar disorder and the effect that her illness, and the attempts to alleviate it, have on her family. She dreams of being next to normal. The storyline addresses issues that we may think of as uncomfortable, but in a musical– bet you weren’t expecting that!
