In this Tony and Pulitzer Prize-winning rock musical, Mom isn’t just stressed, she has bipolar disorder — and that doesn’t even begin to describe how her illness affects her family. Director,  Kim Bromley, takes us from the brightest hope to the deepest despair, and then back again, in this emotional roller-coaster of a show. With soaring melodies, an indie rock score and musical direction by Lucas Sherman, “Next to Normal” employs the full power of musical theatre to tell a relevant, transcendent story.  Parental Guidance for language and adult themes.
