NEXT TO NORMAL 

Book and Lyrics by Brian Yorkey,
Music by Tom Kitt

American Legacy Series
This powerful rock musical that took Broadway by storm is a tremendously moving, intimate and ultimately hopeful look at how a “normal” suburban family copes with the effects of mental illness. The Goodmans seem like a perfect family. The only problem is that sometimes mother Diana is, well … a little too happy. Her husband Dan worries all the time. Her daughter Natalie seems awfully intent on getting that scholarship to Yale. And her son Gabe, well … that’s another story entirely.

Winner! 2010 Pulitzer Prize for Drama and three 2009 Tony Awards
