Holmdel Theatre Company presents Next to Normal, the groundbreaking Tony Award-winning rock musical with book & lyrics by Brian Yorkey and music by Tom Kitt, directed by Kathy Connolly and with musical director Andrew Kosinski!
Next to Normal follows the story of the Goodmans, a family of four who, from all outward appearances, are the perfect suburban family. The truth of the matter is this family is anything but perfect. Mother Diana struggles with bipolar disorder and depression, the demons stemming from a trauma endured 16 years ago. Husband Dan lives in a constant state of worry and confusion, teenage daughter Natalie is painfully focused on getting a scholarship to Yale so she can leave home, and son Gabe has his own problems entirely. An emotional powerhouse rock musical and winner of three 2009 Tony Awards, including Best Musical Score, Next to Normal is a heart-wrenching and groundbreaking story of love, acceptance, grief and family.
