With its energetic pop-rock score and even more powerful message, Next to Normal has become one of Broadway's biggest and most compelling hits in recent years. It nabbed three Tonys and a Pulitzer for its heartbreaking, humorous and unflinchingly authentic look at a seemingly normal modern family struggling with the effects of bipolar disorder. Featuring original songs by Tom Kitt (American Idiot) -- including "Just Another Day," "You Don't Know" and "Superboy and the Invisible Girl" -- this emotional powerhouse of a musical addresses grief, suburban life and even ethics in modern psychiatry. Now coming to the stage at the Morgan Hill Community Playhouse, 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."
