WHY SEE NEXT TO NORMAL? Next To Normal is a true piece of art, using story, visuals, and music to challenge the heart, the mind, and the higher intellect by making the viewers (and the performers) really think and question and forcing them to tap into their own emotional lives. Audiences should enjoy art, but it has to occasionally challenge them the way this show does in order to be truly life-changing. That’s why you see this show- it reminds everyone that they’re human beings, and that that is a wonderful truth.
