Next to Normal

FEB. 6-9, FEB. 12-16, 7:30PM

Music by Tom Kitt
Book & Lyrics by Brian Yorkey

This contemporary musical and winner of the 2010 Pulitzer Prize for Drama offers an unflinching look at a suburban household as they cope with crisis and the unpredictability of a mother's worsening bipolar disorder. Next to Normal has been called one of the best musicals of the 21st century due to its brutally honest exploration of its dark, complex subject matter and its powerhouse contemporary rock score by Brian Yorkey and Tom Kitt.

Note: Strobe lighting effects will be used during this performance.

Next to Normal is presented through special arrangement with Music Theatre International (MTI). All authorized performance materials are also supplied by MTI.

Tickets: Adults - $24 | Students/Military - $20 | *Xcel Energy Rush Tickets - $5

*A limited number of rush tickets are available at the door of each ETC performance starting one hour prior to curtain. These tickets are cash only, and all members of your party must be present to purchase.
