All In Productions is pleased to announce

its next show, NEXT TO NORMAL, running at Next Act Theatre from September 7 to 16. The show is being directed by Tim Backes and music directed by Julie Johnson.

“Dad’s an architect; Mom rushes to pack lunches and pour cereal; their daughter and son are bright, wise-cracking teens, appearing to be a typical American family. And yet their lives are anything but normal because the mother has been battling manic depression for 16 years. Next to Normal takes audiences into the minds and hearts of each character, presenting their family’s story with love, sympathy and heart.” – MTI description.
