Hot Date: What is Next to Normal?

photo by Joan Marcus

JULY 19 TO 31 A bold and harrowing story of psychiatric ethics and suburban life, Next to Normal is not your average Broadway musical. Brought to Toronto by Dancap Productions, this dramatic rock musical—winner of the 2010 Pulitzer Prize for Drama, along with three 2009 Tony Awards—tells of a family struggling to care for one another while battling mental illness. Alice Ripley reprises her acclaimed lead role as a mother whose worsening bipolar disorder sends her into a tailspin. Four Seasons Centre for the Performing Arts, Tuesday to Saturday 7:30 p.m., Wednesday, Saturday and Sunday 2 p.m., $34 to $129; call 416-644-3665 or visit here to buy.
