NEXT TO NORMAL
Music by Tom Kitt
Book & lyrics by Brian Yorkey
3 Tony Awards and the Pulitzer Prize for Best Drama
Following the tremendous success of last season’s oneweek run, the hit musical NEXT TO NORMAL returns to the stage of Vienna’s English Theatre by popular demand.
“Who‘s crazy: The one who’s uncured? Or maybe the one who’s endured?”
NEXT TO NORMAL has been called the best new musical of the 21st century. It is the story of Diana Goodman and her family; on the outside they appear to be a typical US family and yet their lives are anything but normal. Diana has been battling her own demons for years, which is affecting everyone in her life. As the mystery of what is triggering Diana’s instabilility is slowly unravelled, the audience is taken on a heartwrenching journey into the power of memory and the fragility of the mind. With its balance of humour and pathos NEXT TO NORMAL highlights the value of love and the sacrifices we are willing to make.
