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 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." This production marks the first professional play from Starting Arts -- a non-profit organization designed to promote and preserve arts education in schools -- and features a mixture of students as well as members of staff in its talented cast.
