A contemporary rock musical about the devastating toll that mental illness takes on a suburban family may seem odd ... but Next to Normal became one of Broadway's biggest and most compelling hits in recent years. This riveting show nabbed three Tony Awards in 2009 and the Pulitzer Prize for its heartbreaking, humorous and unflinchingly authentic look at a seemingly normal modern family's struggles with the effects of bipolar disorder. Each character's journey in this San Diego Musical Theatre production 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."

_La Jolla Music Society is proud to present Arturo O’Farrill Afro-Latin Septet. Pianist, composer, educator and winner of the Latin Jazz USA Outstanding Achievement Award for 2003, Arturo was born in Mexico and grew up in New York City. In 2002, he created the Afro Latin Jazz Orchestra for Jazz at Lincoln Center due in part to a large and very demanding body of substantial music in the genre of Latin and Afro Cuban Jazz that deserves to be much more widely appreciated and experienced by the general jazz audience. His debut album with the Orchestra Una Noche Inolvidable earned a Grammy® award nomination in 2006.
The prelude featuring Claudia Russell from Jazz88 interviewing Arturo O’Farrill begins at 7:00pm. This show will have one intermission.
