Next to Normal
by Temple Civic Theatre
Feb. 01 - Feb. 10
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. Winner of three 2009 Tony Awards, including Best Musical Score and the 2010 Pulitzer Prize, Next to Normal was also chosen as "one of the year's ten best shows" by critics around the country, including The Los Angeles Times, The Washington Post, Rolling Stone and The New York Times.
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.
Next to Normal is an emotional powerhouse that addresses such issues as grieving a loss, ethics in modern psychiatry, and suburban life.
Cast includes: Sara Baker as Diana; Herbert Clardy as Gabe; Brian Joyce as Dan; Avery Ling as Natalie; Jonathan Robinson as Henry; and Spencer Tolleson as Doctor Madden/Doctor Fine.
Natasha Tolleson directs this stellar cast in what is sure to be an exceptionally stunning production.
