Bootless Stageworks presents the Tony Award Winning and Pulitzer Prize winning hit musical, "Next to Normal", in support of Delaware Mental Health Awareness Month.  Its story concerns a mother who struggles with worsening bipolar disorder and the effect that her illness has on her family. The musical also addresses such issues as grieving a loss, suicide, drug abuse, ethics in modern psychiatry, and suburban life. Next to Normal received several workshop performances before it debuted off-Broadway in 2008, winning the Outer Critics’ Circle Award for Outstanding Score and receiving nominations for Drama Desk Awards for Outstanding Actress (Alice Ripley) and Outstanding Score. After an Off-Broadway run, the show then played at the Arena Stage in its temporary venue in Arlington, Virginia from November 2008 to January 2009.

The musical opened on Broadway in April 2009 and was nominated for eleven 2009 Tony Awards, winning three – Best Original Score, Best Orchestration and Best Performance by a Leading Actress in a Musical for Alice Ripley. It also won the 2010 Pulitzer Prize for Drama, becoming just the eighth musical in history to receive the honor. In awarding the prize to Kitt and Yorkey, the Pulitzer Board called the show “a powerful rock musical that grapples with mental illness in a suburban family and expands the scope of subject matter for musicals.”

Bootless's production features a stellar cast of rising stars in the region's professional theater scene, as well as some new faces.  The show features Jennifer Huth, Mark Dixon, Valarie Jonkoff and Corey Buller as members of the Goodman Family, Daniel Kiernan as Henry, and John Jerbasi as Dr. Fine/Dr. Madden. 

Next to Normal runs May 9 through May 19. Tickets are available both online, through the box office, and, when available, at the door at house opening.
