Dad’s an architect. Daughter and son are bright, wise-cracking teens. Mom rushes to pack lunches, pour cereal and cope. On the surface, they’re an all American family, but their story of love, sympathy and heart, as they struggle to manage normally under the mantle of Mom’s manic depression, will take audiences warmly into the hearts and minds of each character in this deeply moving piece of musical theatre.
AUDIENCE ADVISORY: NEXT TO NORMAL contains strong language and adult situations that some may find offensive.
