Location: Class of 1970 Theater, Whitman College
Join the actors and director before the show for a conversation on the theme of mental health in Next to Normal.
The Princeton University Players are proud to present this year’s winter show, Next to Normal, directed by Steven Tran ’15! Coping with a long history of bipolar disorder and schizophrenia hasn’t been the easiest for mother Diana Goodman and her family. Between therapy, school, the office, the boyfriend, piano lessons, and football, the Goodmans have enough on their plates, but they manage to get by. But one day, Diana’s illness starts to swerve out of control, and the cracks of dysfunction emerge to split this family apart. Next to Normal is an emotionally raw, electrifying rock musical that forces us to examine illness and pain through the eyes of this hurting family.
The play will be performed in the Class of 1970 Theater at Whitman College on February 21-23 & February 28-March 2 at 8 pm, and March 2 at 2pm.
