Next To Normal is a musical roller coaster of manic highs and depressive lows that tells the story of a mother, Diane, struggling with bipolar disorder and its effect on her family. With an invigorating score and provocative lyrics, this family tries to cope with devastating loss, draining medical treatments and personal trails while seeking to maintain a sense of normalcy in their lives. This musical is a touching portrait of a modern family that do their best to survive in the shadow of depression.
