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.
"Next to Normal covers a challenging subject, no question. That it's hopeful and uplifting, not depressing, is more than a triumph -- it's next to wondrous." -- The New York Daily News
