Next to Normal takes the Brüka Theatre stage for Artown 2017. A darkly funny award winning musical directed by John Frederick and musically directed by Cami Thompson.

Boasting 3 Tony Awards, 11 nominations, and a Pulitzer Prize for Drama, Next to Normal takes the audience on a musical journey through what some call everyday life and others call illness. Connecting with theatergoers in a way that will have them singing the songs and talking about the story long after the curtain falls.
