A rock musical about the devastating toll of mental illness on a contemporary suburban family might seem odd, but Next to Normal became one of Broadway's biggest hits. This riveting show swept up three Tony Awards in 2009 and the Pulitzer Prize for its heartbreaking, humorous and unflinchingly authentic look at a seemingly normal modern family struggling with the effects of bipolar disorder. Each character's journey is further punctuated by powerful music scored by Tom Kitt (American Idiot). Featuring 30 original songs, including "Just Another Day," "You Don't Know" and "Superboy and the Invisible Girl," Next to Normal is, in the words of The New York Times, "much more than a feel-good musical; it is a feel-everything musical."

Great story. Well acted. If there was any issue at all, it would be that Theresa at times was difficult to here. There is no microphones in this small theatre (they aren't necessary), but Mother Theresa was a quiet personality and was played perfectly. I don't know what the solution might be, because raising her voice would take her out of character. We were third row center. I don't know the acoustics of the theatre, they may actually be better toward the back, as we were well below stage level. There is also a lot of Russian revolution history from Malcolm's past as a journalist that was very interesting and a bit disturbing. I guess we have heard and learned so much about Hitler's horrors that Stalin gets left out. Rambling a little here, but to sum up; go see it, if you get the chance.

Very well presented! The play brought to mind many events that have been forgotten in the 1930s ad 1960s. It is worthwhile to review Malcolm's role in history and the political climate that existed in these two periods. The play is well-written...continued
About the Ticket Supplier: A.D. Players
A. D. Players, or After Dinner Players, was founded in 1967 by Jeannette Clift George. The troupe of part-time actors performed its first performance in 1968, and seven years later, in 1975, the Players created a Touring Company. In the late 1970s, the Players purchased the Grace theater building. Soon, the Touring Company was making an international performances, and the Players also established the Theater Arts Academy, originally providing drama classes to children. A. D. Players continued to grow through the early nineties, even expanding with the building of Saint Street Annex, which served as the new home for costume shop, Touring Company, rehearsal hall, and Theater Arts Academy. The company also started Houston’s first year round children’s theater at St. Luke’s United Methodist Church Rotunda. In 1997, A. D. Players made their off-broadway debut of John His Story at Lamb’s Theatre, New York City.
The future of A. D. Players is bright. In 2003, the company purchased over three aces of land in the Galleria area of Houston. The purchase of this land will enable A. D. Players to consolidate six current theater locations, including a 450-seat Mainstage Theater, a 300-seat Children’s Theater, and a 150-seat Black Box Theater. This new facility, located in one of the top tourist destinations in Houston, will enable A. D. Players to continue serving the Houston community with its unique artistic signature of hope and faith.
