Pinole Players Present NEXT TO NORMAL, 2/1-16
Working out of the Pinole Community Playhouse, the Pinole Players continue along their 27-year track as "the little theatre that could." Knowing audiences have cheered the steady stream of hit shows The Players have staged in their intimate 80-seat theater in Pinole.
With Next to Normal, the Pinole Players pull back the curtain on what is probably their most ambitious undertaking yet. The Tony and Pulitzer Prize-winning rock musical is truly a musical written for our times. Its story concerns a mother who struggles with worsening bipolar disorder and the effect that her illness has on her family. Music is by Tom Kitt, book and lyrics by Brian Yorkey.
