NEXT TO NORMAL • January 2018
From Abbey's program note: "For as long as I can remember, the subject of mental illness has been silenced not just in society at large, but in the arts as well. Something we are often too afraid or ashamed to talk about. The story of Next to Normal is very personal to me, and if you take anything away from this production, I hope it is understanding and empathy for those who struggle with mental illness, and for the people close to them who must also fight every day."
