What an unbelievable honor!

The 2010 Pulitzer Prize for drama has been awarded to the Tony Award-winning musical Next To Normal!

Apparently, the board that awards the Pulitzers overruled three other jury recommendations for the award in order to honor the show, which chronicles a woman's struggle with mental illness and featured actress Alice Ripley as the lead!

Congratulations to everyone involved!

    I have seen the show twice and it has moved me to tears every time. “Next to Normal” really is what’s wonderful about musical theatre to me. You don’t need the costumes or the props or the dance numbers to tell a wonderfully complex story that will touch you to the core. Congrats on the win, N2N, you absolutely deserved it!

    This is such a wonderful honor for an outstanding show. Next to Normal hits very close to home for me and it moved me to tears when I got the chance to see it. Congratulations to Tom Kitt and Brian Yorkey!

    I am sooooo happy for them!!! When I saw this show the first time (3 under my belt so far) I fell in love and this musical jumped up to my favorite musical of all time!! I listen to the soundtrack constantly. Alice Ripley is amazing (although kinda crazy for real–anyone see her youtube videos? RIPLEYTHEBAND). Hell, the whole cast is amazing and Kitt/Yorkey deserve this honor. It almost makes up for my upset for their Tony loss of best musical for Billy Elliott).

    I have seen over 700 shows in the past 30 years, and believe Next to Normal is probably the greatest. I also think it might be the best musical ever, it is certainly the most emotional. This show is not just about mental illness, it is even more about the nature of grief and what it means to be part of a family. I am ecstatic the Pulitzer was awarded to this magnificent show, and hope it ensures its legacy so that many, many more people get to see it. And when they make the movie - someone good please make the movie! - please give Tony winner Alice Ripley the lead, she's amazing.
