"No show on Broadway right now makes as direct a grab for the heart or wrings it as thoroughly as Next to Normal does... brave, breathtaking... a work of muscular grace and power."
– New York Times
"...heart-melting... sensitively crafted show... something inordinately powerful in the music and the story, which have been meticulously woven together by the songwriting team of Tom Kitt and Brian Yorkey... beautiful songs that get to the heart of this deceptively complex story – and simply get to the heart."
– Washington Post
"Truly the go-to show of the winter season."
– Washington Times
"An honest, truthful story about a family with problems but a whole lot of love for each other& beautiful, artful, deeply moving."
