Next to Normal

  • Place : LSPU Hall
  • Time : 20:00
  • Contact : Kyle McDavid
  • Details : Best Kind Productions is thrilled to present our 2016 mainstage musical production, Next to Normal. This contemporary musical is a powerhouse that will make you cry, laugh, love, and feel. They appear to be a typical family, living in your typical suburb: Dad's an architect; Mom rushes to pack lunches and pour cereal; their daughter and son are busy, bright, wise-cracking teens. Nice kids, nice house, nice car, and yet their lives are anything but normal. Winner of three 2009 Tony Awards including Best Musical Score, and the 2010 Pulitzer Prize for Drama, Next to Normal takes audiences on a journey exploring the heart, the mind, the family, and the things we love. Centering around Diana Goodman, a mother who struggles with bipolar disorder, this powerful musical examines the effects her mental illness has on her family and addresses issues such as grieving, ethics and treatment in modern psychiatry, and suburban life. Recommended for ages 16+ due to language and subject matter. ----------------------------------------------------- Starring: Kelly-Ann Evans, Philip Goodridge, Erin Mackey, Tim Caudle, Paul Wilson, and Jeff Simms.
