Diana is right when she sings that you dont have to be happy at all to be happy you're alive. Nor do musicals have to bubble with cheer to transport an audience as this one does.

Why See Next To Normal?

A contemporary classic

Fox Theatre presents the Tony Award and Pulitzer Prize-winning rock musical by Brian Yorkey and Tom Kitt, as part of their Broadway By The Bay season. With memorable songs such as "Just Another Day," "You Don't Know" and "Superboy and the Invisible Girl", this touching piece of musical theatre examines mental health and modern psychiatry, through the lens of one suburban household coping with crisis. With provocative lyrics and a score featuring more than 30 original songs, the musical shows how far two parents will go to keep themselves sane and their family’s world intact.

It was universally praised for its unflinching approach to tackling mental illness, and bipolar disorer in particular, dispelling many of the myths and stigma associated with the disease. What resulted was a simultaneously heartbreaking and humorous examination of mental health within a family unit.
