The production I saw a weekend ago didn't have an identifiably "Asian" Marcy Park , no jokes about her "kind" of family, just that her family pushed her to excel and she felt the pressure.

I just want to say that Alice Ripley gives a top notch performance every night in Next To Normal. It's going to be sad to see her go. But, I can't wait to see what her new project will be.

I love Next to Normal, and very much wish I could see the current touring show (with Alice Ripley!!)
It had a good run, but its too bad I couldn't get to New York in enough time to see it! :(
I understand the comments about the lyrics (I know those were old, but with Alice coming back into the show I thought I might update the thread slightly) being slightly sloppy at some points, but overall I love the music - the variation of styles (as others have mentioned) and the general "feel" of the songs, if you know what I mean. It has so much emotion and power! It is a bit of a dark route, but luckily it has gotten a great response. I feel if this show had gone on Broadway any earlier than it did, it would have gotten a very negative response. It's nice to know our society is a little more accepting of some of these types of things. ;)
This musical is very underrated!
So people like the touring company? Why is it only playing in Illinois and Iowa??! :-k

You Don't Know is amazing. Also, all of the depressing musicals tend to be quite legit, we needed a depressing contemporary musical. :D :-({|= :o
