Next to Normal is an inventive, emotional powerhouse production about one family who is about to face the music. This multiple Tony Award-winning, groundbreaking work features a thrilling contemporary score. ZACH’s Producing Artistic Director Dave Steakley says, “I am so thrilled that we’ll produce the Central Texas premiere of what I think is the best piece of theatre in the past five years. Next to Normal is one of only three musicals to ever win the Pulitzer Prize – It knocks me out!”
