Next To Normal, a rock musical, opened on Broadway on April 2009 with book and lyrics by Brian Yorkey, and music by Tom Kitt. It won three Tony awards in 2009 including Best Musical Score. It also won the 2010 Pulitzer Award and made numerous Top Ten Best Shows lists. Next to Normal examines how one typical suburban family handles the slow retreat into manic depression that the mother is battling. Critics call it “an emotional powerhouse” that explores how a family deals with grief and weighs the ethics of psychiatry, as it depicts family life in a suburban setting.
