Music by Tom Kitt. Book and Lyrics by Brian Yorkey.


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.

Critical Acclaim

“No show on Broadway right now makes as direct a grab for the heart — or wrings it as thoroughly — as Next to Normal does…brave, breathtaking…a work of muscular grace and power.” – New York Times

“…heart-melting…sensitively crafted show… something inordinately powerful in the music and the story, which have been meticulously woven together by the songwriting team of Tom Kitt and Brian Yorkey… beautiful songs that get to the heart of this deceptively complex story — and simply get to the heart.” – Washington Post

“Truly the go-to show of the winter season.” – Washington Times

“An honest, truthful story about a family with problems but a whole lot of love for each other…beautiful, artful, deeply moving.” – Chicago Tribune
