A new musical by Jacob Jarrett, Normativity tells the story of Emily, the optimistic lesbian protagonist of a Young Adult novel written by an author on the verge of fame. Unhappy with the unfair story she is given, Emily comes to life to change her story, to get her happy ending. Along the way Emily and an ambitious high school teen named Taylor, discover what it means to feel and why this story is so important to everyone involved. The question becomes can these two young girls get their happy endings? Or is the happy ending even what they really want?
