The exploration of a suburban family struggling with the effects of mental illness has a book and lyrics by Brian Yorkey and music by Tom Kitt. The original production won three 2009 Tony Awards, including Best Original Score for the pair. The musical subsequently won the 2010 Pulitzer Prize for Drama.

Longhurt said in an earlier statement, “Some stories pierce the heart of the human condition: Tom and Brian’s astonishing musical does just that—facing our deepest vulnerabilities whilst celebrating our capacity to endure. The outpouring of emotion from audiences at the Donmar was incredible: You could hear audible sobs before they surged to their feet every single night—like nothing I’ve experienced. Tickets were impossible to come by, so I am beyond thrilled that more people will nowbe able to experience the work of this extraordinary creative team.”

The production also has musical supervision by Nigel Lilley, designs by Chloe Lamford, lighting design by Lee Curran, sound design by Tony Gayle, movement direction, choreography, and additional direction by Ann Yee, video design by Tal Rosner, musical direction by Nick Barstow, casting by Anna Cooper, and production management by Chris Hay.

Next to Normal is produced by David Stone, James L. Nederlander, and The Donmar Warehouse.
