Winner of three Tony Awards and the 2010 Pulitzer Prize, Next to Normal is anything but an ordinary play. Held in high esteem by the theater community and audiences nationwide, the production artfully introduces onlookers into the lives of a suburban family struggling with the realities of mental illness. Using a dialogue and narrative exploring the depths of each individual character, Brian Yorkey’s masterpiece has become an emotional powerhouse that manifests grief, love and sympathy on stage. In collaboration with the Modern Theater and Coeur d’Alene Summer Theater, the Bing Crosby Theater presents a contemporary masterpiece with shows starting in early April.
