Insight’s 10th season opened with Next To Normal, a rock musical opened on Broadway on April 2009 with book and lyrics by Brian Yorkey, and music by Tom Kitt. Next to Normal won three Tony awards in 2009 including Best Musical Score. It also won the 2010 Pulitzer Award and was listed as one of the Ten Best shows by the critics from major newspapers.
Next to Normal examines how one typical suburban family handles the slow retreat into manic depression the mother is battling.
Critics call it “an emotional powerhouse” that explores “how a family deals with grief, weighs the ethics of psychiatry, as depicts family life in a suburban setting. It is presented with love, sympathy and punch.”
