Next to Normal: The Twitter Performance
Hear the Prelude -
DIANA: Another restless night. Kid got home at 3am. He's a twat.
GABE: Please. I'm almost 18, mom I can go out. And don't call me a twat.
DAN: wants his wife to come to bed. She's in a particularly amorous mood. And how often does that happen?
DAN: hopes this latte warms up today’s cold wet weather.
DIANA: Beautiful days like today make me want to dive in with both feet first.
NATALIE: Getting ready for school. Calculus, history quiz, Flowers for Algernon. Everything under control. Totally. Under control. Woo hoo!
GABE: It’s just another day feeling I’ll live forever. What’s mom up to?
Hear “Just Another Day” -
NATALIE: Mom’s on fire this morning. May school show mercy.
DIANA: Making lunches. Ham sandwiches. Gabe’s favorite. Natalie wants vegetarian. She gets lettuce.
GABE: Snapshot: Mom making lunch. How many mothers do it on the floor? Love that crazy lady.
DAN: Do all wives end up sprawled on the floor making dozens of sandwiches for no one? This happens to other people, yes? Anyone?
DIANA: Nap time… Got carried away today. Fluffy pillows help brain recharge. Mmmm.
HENRY: OMG. That girl Natalie’s in the practice room working on some classical something & her playing is sweet. Working up guts to say hey.
NATALIE: Piano practice. Sonata for recital. Dude just like invades practice room. Annoying. Hate him. Kinda cute.
Hear “Everything Else” -
DAN: On to the official dinner debate: groceries or take out? Sigh. Remember cooking?
GABE: Shhh…. Mom’s asleep.
DIANA: Scared. Appointment with Dr. Fine. He speaks in riddles.
DAN: Taking wife to doctor. Everything'll be fine. Just another day…
NATALIE: agreed to hang out with this Henry kid. Don't know why. Total pretentious stoner type. And wears...wait for it...flannel.
GABE: Mom is at the doctor today…not a fan of the doctor. He's creepy. Loves pills.
HENRY: has gotta think up a good date place for a Thursday night. Any suggestions?
DR. FINE: It's true. It's not an exact science. But eventually you get it right.
DIANA: At Dr. Fine, my psychopharmacologist. It’s like an odd romance. He knows my deepest secrets. I know his, um, name.
Hear “My Psychopharmacologist and I” -
DAN: Sitting in car waiting again for Diana. It’s my life as I live it. Who’s the crazy one in this equation?
NATALIE: Still can’t figure out Henry’s jazz. He's just like pulling shit out of thin air. Plus he laughs at his own jokes. Whatevs.
HENRY: wants to smoke a bowl and jam on Twinkle Twinkle Little Star. Nat's righteous idea. I see hope for her to mellow.
DR. FINE: Meds that work for one p. may not for another. Meds may have one effect on a depressive p. and an opposite effect on a bipolar p.
DIANA: watching CNN. Will my pretty pills make me immune to Swine Flu? Husband Dan napping in armchair.
DAN: just woke up from nap to Diana obsessing over Swine Flu, of all things.
NATALIE: is locked in her bedroom finding the “cure” in Flowers for Algernon majorly unlikely. Lame choice, English teacher.
GABE: loves nights like tonight w/ the whole fam around the TV. My sister Natalie’s upstairs. She can stay there.
HENRY: Thinks Natalie is so cool, Though she nixed date idea (jazz club). New date idea: Hanging in practice room.
NATALIE: Stoner Jazz Boy does not give up. Just hangs around practice room. Wanted to go "catch some jazz." Who talks like that?
NATALIE: is “hanging out” with Stoner Jazz Boy. Won't let me practice. Plays his "jazz". Good player, tho.
HENRY: thinks she's totally falling for me. Totally digs my playing. Coming over to my house later. Sweet.
HENRY: In a world full of poisoned oceans, war, death and disease, one thing I know…I might be perfect for her.
Hear “Perfect for You” -
NATALIE: Stoner Jazz Boy just dropped me off. He’s all right. :-) But what's with the rugby shirt?
DIANA: Happened to be passing upstairs window, saw Natalie and some boy. Swapping spit on the porch. WHAT? When did she get a boyfriend?
GABE: Mom – spying on her own daughter. Mom – not listening to me, her son.
DAN: just swung by home to drop off Di’s prescriptions. She was staring at the unplugged TV again. Maybe it's meditation?
DIANA: *sigh* Everything fine. Just...fine. I hate fine. I miss the highs and lows. I miss my life.
Hear “I Miss the Mountains” -
GABE: Proud of Mom tossing her pills away. She can be herself again. Brave of her.
DAN: is flipping through Architectural Digest. Diana downstairs. Natalie out with this new boy. Harry? Herbie? Something like that.
NATALIE: doesn’t want to go see Star Trek. Highly loserish. Stoner Jazz Boy’s suggestion. Bah.
DAN: Bright day, perfect for yardwork. Diana’s new pills are working...It’s gonna be good good good!
DIANA: is feeling charged up & fantastic. Disinfected the entire house, rewired the computer, and has a yen for roof retiling.
GABE: Mom’s been bustling recently. Go mom! :-)
HENRY: Learning a Bach piece, to show Nat I can. So many notes. Can't get my mind off Nat. Does she think of me?
NATALIE: has decided to call Stoner Jazz Boy by his real name: Henry.
HENRY: @ Natalie, LMAO!
DAN: driving about town: Home Depot, the Green Nursery. No frantic calls on my cell.
Hear “It’s Gonna Be Good” -
DIANA: just dug an old apron out of the cupboard. Lovely bright floral print. Let’s wear it. It's HAPPY!
DAN: is happy Di is cooking his favorite dinner: swordfish with roasted potatoes.
NATALIE: doesn’t like when guys press to come inside!
HENRY: @ Natalie, Sorry! Just wanna meet the folks! :-)
NATALIE: @ Henry, Keep wanting!
GABE: is wishing mom a Happy Mother's Day!
HENRY: driving Natalie home soon after a day at my place. The Bach was okay, but I’m still down with my Hubbard.
GABE: pretending he doesn’t see mom baking his cake… ;-)
NATALIE: can’t believe Dad invited Henry in. Is he trying to humiliate me?
DAN: is pleased to meet his daughter’s new friend. Extra spot at the dinner table. Maybe Diana knew Harry was coming?
DIANA: HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO GABE! Happy Birthday to Gabe! :-)
GABE: Thanks, mom! You’re the best.
NATALIE: MOM off the deep end. Brings out a cake for Gabe. In front of Henry. This is f*cked.
DAN: has to remind Di that Gabe isn’t here for his “party.”
Hear “He’s Not Here” -
HENRY: is WHOA! Maybe I shouldn't've come in after all.
NATALIE: @ Henry, NOW do you see why you don't come to my house?
DAN: thinks it’s time for a new appointment with Dr. Fine. This'll all be okay.
DIANA: flushed her meds. We have the happiest septic tank on the block.
DIANA: doesn't want to go see Dr. Fine again. Through with Dr. Fine.
Hear “You Don’t Know” -
DIANA: is reading today's obituaries...feeling jealous of the dead. Dan doesn't understand.
DAN: I am the one who knows her. I am the one who cares. Why does she act like she's angry at me? What did I do?
GABE: sits with mom as she looks out the window.
DIANA: My husband doesn't get me. My son does. He reminds me of Dan, way back when...
Hear “I am the One” -
DIANA: Doesn’t think nuking last night’s left over chicken beyond edibility is as funny as it sounds. Must hide evidence from Dan.
DAN: Just called to check in on Di. The new doctor search for her continues. :-/
HENRY: hanging out after school at Natalie’s place.
HENRY: Voila! A bong out of an apple. I'm the MacGyver of pot.
DIANA: is singing Gabe his favorite song from when he was a baby. Haha! I love it.
NATALIE: omg… Mom singing to my brother again. Completely ignored me when I walked in. Of course.
NATALIE: can’t stand this. Gabe's Superboy and I'm just invisible. ARRRGH!
DIANA: @ Natalie, don’t you know I love you…as much as I can?
NATALIE: @ Diana, Thanks mom. I feel that much better. Oh, and I hate my brother.
Hear “Superboy and the Invisible Girl” -
GABE: understands that parents have their favorite child. Totally normal. So I'm mom's? So what? My sister needs to relax.
HENRY: is totally glad he's an only child.
NATALIE: @ Henry, Pass me your stupid apple bong, MacGyver.
DAN: spends hump day in blueprint hell at the office. Never mind the issues at home.
HENRY: munches on a Grilled Cheese while helping Natalie choose music for her recital.
NATALIE: wonders if Stoner Jazz Boy is for real. Why hasn't he freaked out yet? Maybe just supremely baked.
DAN: suggests depression chat rooms. Helpful in coping and finding suggestions. Plus neat graphics.
GABE: is :( about mom going to new doctor. Boo Dad. When will he give it up?
DIANA: checked out those depression chat rooms. What a bunch of wet blankets.
DAN: found a rock star of a doctor for Diana. Thanks for the suggestion, Carla, Jolie and Marion!
DIANA: @ Dan, Three people at work know I'm nuts? Thanks a ton, HONEY.
GABE: thinks his mother is totally fine and wishes dad would LAY OFF. He's the one who's obsessed.
NATALIE: doesn’t want to admit, yes she’s touched by the CD you gave me.
HENRY: @ Natalie, Consider me your bass line keeping you on beat. :-)
NATALIE: @ Henry. Lose the metaphors, SJB.
DIANA: sits annoyed in waiting room. Not sure about this new Dr. Madden today. Okay, here goes…
DIANA: Whoa! Rocked by new doctor. Out of breath. Freaky. Tingly. Like when I was front row for Bon Jovi in 1987.
DR. MADDEN: Diana Goodman. Has been diagnosed bipolar but also presents with delusional episodes.
DIANA: is filling Dr. Rock Star in on Gabe – his school work, how he helps me cope, how he just turned 18…
GABE: won’t move away from home. He’ll stick right by mom’s side.
Hear “I’m Alive” -
NATALIE: Week in Review: Mom living in therapy. Dad chipper as a Xanax ad. Too much brother talk. Thinking about mom’s pills.
HENRY: is resorting to Twitter, Natalie, since you’re ignoring my texts…
NATALIE: @ Henry, UM, I’m practicing for my recital on Tuesday. Will call later.
DAN: Dr. Madden suggests hypnosis might help Di be able to confront underlying issues.
NATALIE: is in the practice rooms. My fingers are tingling through this sonata. Still nervous about Tuesday’s recital.
DAN: driving Di to Dr. Madden’s. Cool story on NPR. Even adults are Twittering now. It's true!
DIANA: is drained from the hypnosis. Not quite like the movies. No swinging watch. Dr. Rock Star just talks...and I go under. He's magic.
HENRY: is in the practice room listening to Nat. Starting to like classical. Beethoven did coke. It's true, I read it on Wikipedia.
DAN: feels worried… Di keeps coming home in tears. Shouldn't therapy make you feel better? :-(
GABE: doesn't like this doctor mom's seeing. He thinks mom should let me go. Mom listens. I feel like...falling.
Hear “Catch Me I’m Falling” -
DIANA: Brought up Natalie. Dr. Rock Star surprised. Why? I love her. I do. We're just...different.
GABE: thinks all this is none of the doctor's business. Our family is fine. We can take care of things ourselves.
HENRY: is making pit stop at the flower shop. What flora is a good pick-me-up? (Besides the obvs, people.)
NATALIE: Recital today. No mom and dad. Big fucking surprise. Staying calm with a little medical assistance. All will be fine.
HENRY: What is Nat doing? Is she messed up? You don't improvise at a classical recital. Do you? And not with rock riffs, for sure.
NATALIE: Uh. Yeah. I fucked that one up. Who cares? Mozart sucks balls.
DAN: Applause, applause to Natalie for yesterday’s concert. I’m sure it was awesome.
NATALIE: @ Dan, You’d have enjoyed it more if you and mom actually made it there.
DIANA: has thought about it and is ready to let Gabe go. I think. No, I am. I am.
GABE: isn't going anywhere. Staying with mom. She's the only one who gets me.
GABE: Mom is really hurting. And it hurts me. There has to be something I can do.
DIANA: is packing up Gabe’s things. The music box—we played it when he was a baby. I'd dance him around the room to stop him crying.
Hear “I Dreamed a Dance” -
DAN: hears his wife rustling downstairs. Giving her space. This is a good step for her.
GABE: wants mom to stop crying. Dad just leaves her there. I can help her get to a better place.
Hear “There’s a World I Know” -
DIANA: knows what she needs to do.
NATALIE: txt from Dad. Mom in the hospital? What the fuck? And why is he TXTING me? Shouldn't he CALL?
DAN: Won't be in to work at all today. Family emergency. Everything's fine now—just need to clean up.
HENRY: wishes Nat knew that I'm here for her. That's what bf's are for. She won't even call me her bf. Calls me "this guy she knows." :-(
DAN: @ Natalie, your mom's in for a new treatment. ECT.
Hear “I’ve Been” -
NATALIE: @ Dan, looked up ECT online. That's bullshit! People, back me up here.
HENRY: @ Natalie, um, don't believe everything you read on Wikipedia. Just sayin'.
DAN: It's the best course of treatment for the state she's in. Right? Someone help me out here. Should I sign the consent form?
DAN: has decided to sign the form.
NATALIE: @ Henry, Let's go out. Now.
HENRY: @ Natalie, On a Sunday night?
NATALIE: @ Henry, Now.
DAN: wonders where his daughter is spending Memorial Day. Is this Henry a good influence?
NATALIE: @ Dan, Compared to what?
DAN: @ Natalie, Okay, that’s fair.
DIANA: the nurses here are so nice. I feel so guilty they have to do so much for me. But, you know, I'm strapped to my bed.
GABE: hates this fucking hospital. Wants to get mom out. This place scares me.
GABE: can't deal. If this shit goes the way I think it might go, I could be out of here.
DIANA: Doctor Rock Star almost seems sad. Didn't know he had emotions. Wants me to try ECT.
GABE: wants his mom to NOT do this. Mom, are you listening? IT CAUSES BRAIN DAMAGE.
NATALIE: would like to know WHAT THE FUCK IS GOING ON? Dad wants Mom to do ECT and it's bullshit.
DIANA: is having second fucking thoughts. Didn’t I see this movie with McMurphy and the nurse? And didn't the good guys fry in the end?
Hear “Didn’t I See This Movie?” -
DAN: Will get Di to sign the form. I can’t get through this alone. I need her home.
GABE: She's doing it. She's really doing it, starts tomorrow. And everything changes.
Hear “A Light in the Dark” -
End of Act 1.
The Twitter Performance: Act 2
GABE: is packing my bags. One thing to do before I go...
NATALIE: Mom's old meds all over the counter. Do kids really take this stuff? What does it do?
DIANA: So far so good. Breathing deeply, as instructed. Doctor Rock Star talking low...sleepy...
DAN: is going home. Natalie on her way out. Since when does she go out on a weeknight?
NATALIE: feels better than I've felt in a long time.
HENRY: American Idol is like Aunt Helen. Obnoxious, stupid, drives you nuts, but entertaining, and u miss her when she's gone. Nat calling.
NATALIE: has strapped on her bo
NATALIE: is trying to get her shit together. Mom's coming home. Don't want Dad thinking...whatever.ogie shoes. Ready to roll.
HENRY: When did Natalie become a party girl?
DAN: thinks the ECT is going well. Keep fingers crossed.
DIANA: this seems to be going well. This treatment. Um. ECT, yes, that's what it's called.
Hear “Wish I Were Here” -
NATALIE: is swirling around the club. Total head trip. Plug me in, turn me on, flip the switch, I’m good as gone.
HENRY: @ Natalie, WTF? Grabbing my coat and finding you.
DIANA: is done with treatments. Dan coming to take me home. Home?
DAN: WOW! Di looks radiant. :-) :-)
NATALIE: is trying to get her shit together. Mom's coming home. Don't want Dad thinking...whatever.
DIANA: wishes she remembered a little more. Like this lovely home. And this girl who's apparently...my daughter?
HEAR "Song of Forgetting" -
HENRY: Natalie totally avoiding me. Gets to class late, leaves right at bell.
NATALIE: @ Henry, Sorry man, I’ve been crazed. Things at home, and all that.
HENRY: @ Natalie, have you thought about the Spring Formal Dance?
NATALIE: @ Henry, I don’t do dances.
Hear “Hey #1” -
HENRY: is laying low today, watching some baseball. Mets and Marlins. What is a Marlin? Swordfish? Or something else?
DAN: wonders if there’s a place in Heaven where memories go to die…
DAN: has pulled out every album, 2 decades of photos to jog Di’s memory.
NATALIE: @ Dan, Dad I’ve got piano lessons. Do the memory exercises while I’m not there.
NATALIE: thinks school dances are for herd mentality posers.
HENRY: @ Natalie, they’re saner than clubs downtown where people get stabbed and things.
NATALIE: @ Henry, no one gets stabbed, and plus: no chaperones!
DAN: looking through photos of Natalie’s birth and the road trip…
Hear “Seconds and Years” -
DIANA: I don’t recognize the chubby girl in the pictures.
NATALIE: Today sucks. Mothers should recognize you in baby pictures and I WAS NOT CHUBBY!
DAN: BREAKTHROUGH! Fantastic news. Di remembers the year of too much lithium! Which was actually two years, but whatever. All good!
Hear “Better Than Before” -
DIANA: Pictures really worked. I'm starting to remember. Bits and pieces. Like postcards from someone else's life.
DIANA: Something's missing. Tugging at me. What is it?
GABE: is packing his duffel bag to head back home and visit mom. Think she misses me.
Hear “Aftershocks” -
HENRY: is planning to pick up Nat for dance Fri @ 8.
NATALIE: is NOT in the mood for the Spring Dance this week…
HENRY: Two possibilities. a: Nat ready Fri @ 8. b: Henry's heart broken.
NATALIE: @Henry: Fail.
Hear “Hey #2” -
DAN: is catching up on reading. Something light. Gaston Bachelard. Very happy Di’s doing better.
DIANA: feels like some Christopher Columbus sailing out into my mind with no map of where I’m going, or of what I’ve left behind.
Hear “You Don’t Know (reprise)” -
GABE: is with mom. She's listening to my old music box. From when I was born. People say you don't remember your first months...but I do.
DIANA: loves this beautiful melody. Amazing how music helps you remember.
Hear “How Could I Ever Forget?” -
DAN: should have tossed that damn music box. It's too soon. Why go all the way down memory lane if it's just a dead end?
Hear “It’s Gonna Be Good (Reprise)” -
DIANA: @ Dan: Why do you put up with this? Day after day? No one has a gun to your head.
Hear “Why Stay?/A Promise” -
GABE: is back home for good!
Hear “I’m Alive (Reprise)” -
DIANA: Gabe is back. I feel like I should be glad. But I'm terrified.
NATALIE: Dad smashing things. Mom going back to the doctor. When I go to college, I'm telling them I'm an orphan.
DIANA: turns out Doctor Rock Star is just another liar like all the rest. Fuck. He was so cute.
Hear “The Break” -
DR. MADDEN: Medicine isn't perfect. But it's what we have?
DIANA: @ Dr.Madden: Is it? Is it all we have? There has to be another way.
DR. MADDEN: @ Diana: I'm as frustrated as anyone by the limitations of medicine. But those limits are expanding every day.
Hear “Make Up Your Mind/Catch Me I’m Falling (Reprise)” -
HENRY: Boss tux jacket: $20 at Goodwill. Corsage thingy: $10 at Safeway. Knowing your date might be dumping you forever: Priceless.
NATALIE: @ Henry, Still at doctor with my mom. Stop txting me emoticons. So annoying.
HENRY: @ Natalie, Sorry. I just love the little sunglasses guy. He means "cool."
DAN: spends his days planning houses to be built. Spends his nights watching his fall apart.
HENRY: guesses his date to the Spring Formal will be a bong. Luckily there is a selection to choose from. The Egyptian one is my fave.
DAN: gave Nat $ for a dress. Think she should go to the dance. Life has to get back to normal.
NAT: @ Henry, I bought a dress.
HENRY: @ Nat, Shut up. Shut. UP. Woo and, um, hoo!
NAT: @ Henry, You Must Chill. I can always return it.
HENRY: is chilling, as instructed.
DAN: that Harry seems like a good kid. Patient. Dutiful. Honest.
DIANA: Everything is completely fucked up. And I haven't felt so clear in years.
