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 bipolar disorder for 16 years. "Next to Normal", with book and lyrics by Brian Yorkey and music by Tom Kitt, explores how one suburban household copes with crisis and mental illness.


"Megan Knowlton Balne has given this musical Broadway hit a new life."

"NEXT TO NORMAL at Masquerade Theatre is An Unforgettable Theatrical Experience"

Read the reviews from Boardway World and Kevin Stephany.
