Winner of three Tony Awards and the 2010 Pulitzer Prize for Drama, Next to Normal explores a suburban household affected by mental illness. With a gripping story and a surging contemporary rock score, Next to Normal is a raw depiction of a family in crisis trying to overcome the past.  

Starring internationally acclaimed Ma-Anne Dionisio (Miss Saigon, Les Misérables) and featuring a powerhouse ensemble of Canada’s top performers, Dora Award-winner Philip Akin directs an exhilarating new production of this favourite contemporary musical.

“A brave, breathtaking musical.”
