Who defines “normal” anyway? For many families, normal is a relative term, but for Diana and her loved ones, normal is a long way away. Against the backdrop of their own crippling pain, Diana’s family try to cope with her mental illness and the toll it takes on their household. Delivering soul-soaring rock and stirring ballads, this Pulitzer Prize- and Tony Award-winning “feel-everything" musical has touched audiences wherever it's played and is heralded for its empathy and compassion.
