ABOUT THE SHOW

Next to Normal, with book and lyrics by Brian Yorkey and music by Tom Kitt, explores how one suburban household copes with crisis and mental illness. 

Winner of three 2009 Tony Awards, including Best Musical Score and the 2010 Pulitzer Prize, Next to Normal was also chosen as "one of the year's ten best shows" by critics around the country, including The Los Angeles Times, The Washington Post, Rolling Stone and The New York Times.

Dad's an architect; Mom rushes to pack lunches and pour cereal; their daughter and son are bright, wise-cracking teens, appearing to be a typical American family. 

And yet their lives are anything but normal because the mother has been battling manic depression for 16 years. 

Next to Normal takes audiences into the minds and hearts of each character, presenting their family's story with love, sympathy and heart. 

Next to Normal will be a shadowed presentation featuring both singing and signing actors, creating not only a vibrant and nuanced production, but also a powerful musical which will be fully accessible to the Deaf community. 

Join us for this first of its kind collaboration between OHP and the Connecticut Deaf Theatre.

Priority seating is available for Deaf/hard-of-hearing patrons and their families.

On May 15 there will be a panel discussion and Q&A after the show with the cast and production team about Deaf inclusion in the arts.

This production is funded in part by a grant from the National Endowment for the Arts.
