NEXT TO NORMAL
New York University's Tisch New Theatre is proud to present NEXT TO NORMAL, the award-winning contemporary rock musical with book and lyrics by Brian Yorkey, and music by Tom Kitt. Winner of three 2009 Tony Awards and the 2010 Pulitzer Prize, NEXT TO NORMAL is an electrifying look at the effects of mental illness. It explores the story of a suburban family learning to cope with crisis, memory, and grief as Diana, the mother, is diagnosed with bipolar disorder. Diana struggles through a series of invasive medical treatments while attempting to remain stable with her depressed husband, her anxious teenage daughter, and above all, her elusive son, who is always on her mind.
NEXT TO NORMAL runs 14 performances October 23 through November 4, 2018 at The SoHo Playhouse, 15 Vandam Street. Tickets go on sale on October 1, 2018.
NEXT TO NORMAL is entirely produced, directed, designed, and performed by over 80 NYU students spanning across multiple schools. Tisch New Theatre has established itself as NYU’s premier student theatre organization. TNT was formed in 2008 as an avenue in which emerging student artists, regardless of area of study, can experience the theatre industry within NYU and New York City. TNT is committed to developing ambitious work intended to entertain, inspire, and unite the artistic efforts of the Tisch Community with the entire NYU student body.
