 Reno, NVNext to Normal takes the Brüka Theatre stage for Artown 2017. A darkly funny award winning musical directed by John Frederick and musically directed by Cami Thompson. Playwright Brian Yorkey’s lyrics skillfully navigates through some of life’s most painful moments with brilliant humor and touching honesty atop Tom Kitt’s powerfully emotional score, making Next to Normal the “feel everything” rock musical you don’t want to miss.

Boasting 3 Tony Awards, 11 nominations, and a Pulitzer Prize for Drama, Next to Normal takes the audience on a musical journey through what some call everyday life and others call illness.
