Next to Normal | Theatre In The Park | Stage | Indy Week
This is a past event.
When: Sept. 7-23 2012
Price: $22-28

Give credit that we live in a world where an original musical about bipolar disorder, medication and familial dysfunction can become a hit and spawn international productions. Brian Yorkey and Tom Kitt's rock musical of a mother's unstable condition perhaps speaks to our medicated age, in which disorders are diagnosed and discussed daily. And of course, who can't relate to having trouble with one's parents as a teenager, even if hallucinations and mood swings aren't always involved? Experience hummable tunes about mental breakdown at Friday's 7:30 p.m. opening show. Performances continue Thursdays–Saturdays at 7:30 p.m. and Sundays at 3 p.m. through Sept. 23. —Zack Smith
