Next To Normal – A Rock Musical – by Dunes Art Foundation

Next to Normal, the rock musical with music by Tom Kitt, book and lyrics by Brian Yorkey

This popular American rock musical that explores life with mental illness was winner of three Tony awards and the 2010 Pulitzer Prize for Drama. Directed by Steve Scott and music direction by Andrew Flasch, this performance will feature a live band with set and lighting design by (TBA)… more details coming soon!

More on “Next to Normal” from Artistic Director Steve Scott:

” Next to Normal is the story of Diana Goodman and her family. Traumatized by the death of her infant son from an undiagnosed intestinal obstruction, Diana has lived with bipolar depressive disorder and delusional episodes for the past seventeen years. The illness has affected everyone in her life, and has nearly torn her family apart on several occasions.
With subject matter rendered achingly recognizable by Brian Yorkey, and a dynamic, energetic pop-rock score by Tom Kitt, ‘Next to Normal’ is a show that enables a small group of actors to showcase powerhouse vocals while exploring pressing contemporary issues of trauma, loss, mental health treatment, and the meaning of family.”

Advisory: This production is intended for audiences aged 13 and up, and contains themes and depictions of mental illness, profanity, discussions of self-harm and the loss of a family member
