Next To Normal

The South Carolina School of the Arts presents Next to Normal, winner of three Tony Awards and the 2010 Pulitzer Prize for Drama. The play is a rock musical that tells the story of a woman with bipolar disorder who struggles valiantly to cope with her illness and its effects on her family. The NY Times calls Next to Normal “brave, breathtaking…a work of muscular grace and power” and the Chicago Tribune stated it was “An honest, truthful story about a family with problems but a whole lot of love for each other…beautiful, artful, deeply moving….” Performances are February 25 – 28 in the Belk Theatre of the Rainey Fine Arts Center, Anderson University.
