Next to Normal, the groundbreaking Tony-winning musical, wowed audiences in 2009 and was one of the rare musicals to win the Pulitzer Prize for Drama. The Goodman Family appears to be a "normal" American family but what is really happening behind that white picket fence? NY Times critic Ben Brantley calls it a "brave, breathtaking musical....no show on Broadway right now makes as direct a grab for the heart." The immediacy of Cape Rep's intimate theatre is sure to make Next to Normal an unforgettable theatrical experience.
