Winner of the 2010 Pulitzer Prize, the musical Next To Normal tells the story of Diana Goodman (West End star Sally Ann Triplett, who has appeared in Chicago, Cats, Mama Mia!, among dozens of other shows), a suburban housewife battling through her daily life, fighting mental demons in the form of bipolar disorder, coupled with hallucinations that stem from a tragedy sixteen years earlier. Her husband Dan (Adrian Pang), tries in vain to keep her mind and his family stable, but their struggles become increasingly traumatic as Diana decides to defy her doctor’s orders. After several failed attempts to stem the tide by therapy, she resorts to desperate measures.

Throughout her struggles, Diana's relationship with her daughter Natalie (Julia Abueva, Spring Awakening) becomes strained because Natalie feels invisible in the eyes of her mother, who prefers the superhero-like image she has created for her son (Nathan Hartono, Spring Awakening), who is not all that he may seem… Things in this family are far from “normal”…

Next To Normal is the extraordinary musical that dares to deal with difficult themes in ways that are profoundly moving and surprisingly comic, resulting in one of the most original and powerful pieces of theatre in modern times, and Pangdemonium is very excited to be producing this amazing show.
