BWW Review: NEXT TO NORMAL Asks Who is Crazier? The One Who Gets Help or the One Who Hopes for the Best?BWW Review: NEXT TO NORMAL Asks Who is Crazier? The One Who Gets Help or the One Who Hopes for the Best?
by Shari Barrett - Mar 11, 2015

This contemporary musical is an emotional powerhouse that addresses such issues as grieving a loss, ethics in modern psychiatry, and the day-to-day reality of suburban life. With provocative lyrics and a thrilling score, this musical shows how far two parents will go to keep themselves sane and their family's world intact. The production plays more like a modern operetta as there is little dialogue with most of the story being told via the story-forwarding song lyrics. (more...)
