Next to Normal

Just when you think it's all been done, a play like Next to Normal comes along and changes the face of modern theater. Rolling Stone hailed it as the musical "that pushed Broadway in new directions," and now, after its New York run ended in 2011, Normal makes its way to Southern California. The Tony- and Pulitzer-award winning story focuses on one family's struggle to cope with crippling mental illness. Matriarch Diana has severe bipolar disorder and suffers from hallucinations, often interacting with visions of her deceased son. Through endless medications and severe treatment, all Diana wants for her family is a healthy, normal life. Passionate, thought-provoking, and incomparably scored (of the three Tonys won, one was Best Original Score), Next to Normal is a must-see for those looking for a different kind of stage performance.
Fridays-Sundays. Starts: May 31. Continues through June 23, 2013
