Tom Kitt and Brian Yorkey's rock musical next to normal is about a suburban family trying to cope with mental illness. Diana, the family's mother, has been diagnosed as bipolar and has endured years of medication in hopes of leveling out her moods. But is that any way to live a life -- flat and unemotional? Her husband Dan just wants her to be healthy, and her daughter Natalie just wants to be noticed by her parents. Lurking around the edges of everybody's consciousness is the fear that their unhappy little family may not survive whatever cure can be found for Natalie's wounded psyche. New Line Theatre presents next to normal at 8 p.m. Thursday through Saturday (February 28 through March 23) at the Washington University South Campus Theatre (6501 Clayton Road; 314-534-1111 or Tickets are $10 to $20.
Thursdays-Saturdays. Starts: Feb. 28. Continues through March 23, 2013
