I saw Next To Normal (Broadway) on 12/18/10. Overall, I'd say it was a 5-star rating. I'd summarize it by saying “I was completely moved by the show's unique, original story. The music especially blew me away!”

I had a wonderful time and left the show feeling inspired and moved. I'd describe the show as sad, warped, and intense. Marin and jason (as diana and dan) was a highlight of the show because they are married in real life! . If this were a movie, I'd rate it R. I would recommend this show to teenagers and adults, especially people struggling with loss or depression but not to kids.

I saw this show because I had heard great things about it and the music was good. I would see it again. I sat in the center mezzanine area of the theater. The view was the best in the house. and the seats were hard and old.
