Next to Normal
The most anticipated musical of the season! Winner of the 2010 Pulitzer Prize and 3 Tony Awards.
This electrifying and powerful rock musical tells the intense and poignant story of a mother, Diana, who wakes up just like any other day with her husband, her 16 year-old daughter and soon-to-be 18 year old son. The musical follows the humor and pathos of this suburban family dealing with mental illness, as Diana embarks on yet another round of treatment for bipolar disorder and the family secrets emerge forcing us to question the always ideal definition of normal. A theatrical experience like no other that will pin you to your seat as you immerse in this emotional powerhouse that changed musical theatre forever with this thrilling contemporary rock score. “Much more than a feel-good musical: A feel-everything musical” – New York Times.
NEXT TO NORMAL is one of the most powerful stage experiences to hit Broadway in recent years becoming the most talked about new show across the country. This “brave and breathtaking musical” (New York Times) is the acclaimed, groundbreaking show “that pushed Broadway in new directions” (Rolling Stone).
The Charlotte premiere of Next to Normal features an all-star award winning cast that includes: Alyson Lowe (QCTC’s Grey Gardens/Chess), Billy Ensley (Grey Gardens/Xanadu), Abby Corrigan, Grant Zavitkovsky, Matt Carlson and Joe McCourt.
