ABOUT next to normal:

Next to Normal is a contemporary family drama, about a woman’s struggle with mental illness, and the effects of her illness on her family. Though the family strives to establish some sort of normality, and each character seeks his or her own peace and happiness, the ties that bind slowly and inevitably unravel around them.

Next to Normal is considered a rock musical, and much of the story is told through song. Though serious in focus, the musical is also full of surprises and humour.
