Performance Notes

× Next to Normal, with book and lyrics by Brian Yorkey and music by Tom Kitt, directed by Deana Duncan, and musical direction by Sheila Weidendorf, explores how one suburban household copes with crisis and mental illness.

Dad's an architect; Mom rushes to pack lunches and pour cereal; their daughter and son are bright, wise-cracking teens, appearing to be a typical American family. And yet their lives are anything but normal because the mother has been battling manic depression for 16 years. Next to Normal takes audiences into the minds and hearts of each character, presenting their family's story with love, sympathy and heart. This deeply moving piece of theatre has an energetic pop/rock score.

April 5 - 20, 2019 Friday and Saturday @ 7:30 / Sunday @ 2:00 Piano Bar opens one hour before each performance Adult $24 / Senior $20 / Youth $17 / Matinee $15
