  • "Next to Normal" runs at The Arkansas Repertory Theatre through May 27.

The Arkansas Repertory Theatre's current show is "Next to Normal," the Tony and Pulitzer Prize-winning musical about a contemporary family's struggle with a mother's struggles with mental illness.

Our reviewer Bernard Reed described it as "unusual and effective, especially in taking the audience to the highs and lows of its bipolar protagonist, and energizing what could have been a very music-less, hard-handed family drama. One is left with the satisfying sensation of having seen everything a stage can offer."

After the jump, check out a preview trailer for the show, which runs through May 27. Performances are Wednesdays and Thursdays at 7 p.m.; Fridays and Saturdays at 8 p.m.; and Sundays at 2 p.m. and 7 p.m.

    You've got to figure that a band from frozen-ass Winnipeg is just gonna be way gnarlier and tougher than a band from some sun-kissed tropical clime where people wear tank tops and flip-flops year-round.
