Book and Lyrics by Brian Yorkey and Music by Tom Kitt Directed by Jacob Rehling for the Storefront Series 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. Winner of three 2009 Tony Awards, including Best Musical Score and the 2010 Pulitzer Prize, Next to Normal was also chosen as "one of the year's ten best shows" by critics around the country, including The Los Angeles Times, The Washington Post, Rolling Stone and The New York Times. *This show contains mature themes and strong language and is not recommended for children. While North Central College Department of Theatre has worked to identify potentially triggering subject matter, it is not possible to identify every moment, as individual concerns may vary.
