BWW Reviews: Wilbury Group Ends Season with Spectacular, Must-See NEXT TO NORMALBWW Reviews: Wilbury Group Ends Season with Spectacular, Must-See NEXT TO NORMAL
by Robert Barossi - May 30, 2015

Some great musicals are great because they take us to another time, another place, perhaps another world entirely, one unrecognizable and filled with magic and fantasy. Others are great because they offer us a realistic and recognizable image of our own lives, a mirror in which we see our struggles, hopes, joys, failures and successes. The really great ones do so while offering an audience a captivating story, deeply developed and universally human characters, stunning music and unforgettable songs with amazing lyrics. One such musical is Next To Normal, now playing as the final show in The Wilbury Group's current season. (more...)

And while director Brian Yorkey attempted a very thoughtful telling of the story, often times the pacing was so deliberately slow as to lose any urgency of the moment. (more...)
