Next to Normal

There is nothing glamorous or campy about Diana, the unlikely musical-theater heroine of this Pulitzer Prize–winning musical about mental illness. Next to Normal is the rarest of Broadway species: a thoughtful, emotional musical for grown-ups. Brian Yorkey and Tom Kitt’s songs boldly merge show-tune influences with more radio-ready styles, and Marin Mazzie plays Diana with surprising intensity. After more than a year, the show remains shocking.—Adam Feldman
