"How does an almost average family navigate today's
over-stimulated and over-medicated world?
In this darkly funny and haunting new musical, one suburban household
confronts its past and its future. With
provocative lyrics and an electrifying score, Next to Normal explores how far two parents will go to keep themselves
sane and their world intact," describe press notes.
