The Purdue Theatre Department showcases the musical, Next to Normal on Friday, November 9 and Saturday, November 10. The winner of the Pulitzer Prize for drama and three Tony awards, Next to Normal presents an unflinching look at a suburban family struggling with the effects of mental illness, set to a rock music score. Dad’s an architect; Mom rushes to pack lunches and pour cereal; their daughter and son are bright, wise-cracking teens, appearing to be a typical American family. And yet their lives are anything but normal because the mother has been battling manic depression for 16 years. Next to Normal takes audiences into the minds and hearts of each character, presenting their family’s story with love, sympathy and heart.
