About Next To Normal

It’s gonna be good, you’ll see! Don’t miss the West End transfer of Next to Normal, which played to sold-out audiences at the Donmar Warehouse. Book Next to Normal tickets on TodayTix.

Suburban housewife Diana Goodman seems to have the ideal life — educated, married, with two teen children — but beneath the surface, she grapples with bipolar disorder. Diana and her family attempt to confront the devastating effects of grief and mental illness, but will they ever find a sense of normalcy?

In a four-star review on London Theatre, their critic said: "This courageous and deeply moving piece provides ecstasy as well as agony, light as well as darkness."

Next to Normal has an electrifying rock score by Tony, Emmy and Grammy Award-winning composer Tom Kitt and Pulitzer Prize and Tony Award-winning lyricist Brian Yorkey. Artistic Director of the Donmar Warehouse, Michael Longhurst, directs this West End transfer.
