The Pulitzer Prize

The 2010 Pulitzer Prize winners were announced this morning and, while a full list can be seen at the Pulitzer Organization's website (pulitzer.org), I wanted to announce to my readers that Next to Normal, the rock musical about bipolar disorder, has won the Pulitzer Prize for Drama,  The official citation on the Pulitzer website says that the prize was "awarded to Next to Normal, music by Tom Kitt, book and lyrics by Brian Yorkey, a powerful rock musical that grapples with mental illness in a suburban family and expands the scope of subject matter for musicals."
