The new Broadway musical, Next to Normal, which has been nominated for 11 Tony Awards including Best Musical, celebrated the retail release of their Original Cast Recording with an in-store performance and CD signing at Barnes and Noble Lincoln Center (1972 Broadway at 66th Street) on Tuesday, May 12th at 4:00p.m.

The entire Broadway company as well as Tony nominated co-creators Tom Kitt and Brian Yorkey were on hand to sign CDs following the special free performance.

Next to Normal has been nominated for 11 Tony Awards: Best Musical, Best Actress in a Musical (Alice Ripley), Best Actor in a Musical (J.

Ben Brantley of the New York Times calls Next to Normal "a brave, breathtaking musical. A work of muscular grace and power." Peter Travers of Rolling Stone raves, "Rock is alive and rolling like thunder in Next to Normal. It is the best musical of the season by a mile. Next time you think the Broadway musical is dead, head off to Next to Normal. It'll pin you to your seat." Joe Dziemianowicz of the New York Daily News proclaims it is "next to wondrous - hopeful and uplifting, Next to Normal is an exceptional show that says something meaning and powerful." Adam Feldman of Time Out New York calls it "surprising and moving, a thoughtful, emotional musical for grown-ups" and Robert Feldberg of The Record raves that Next to Normal is "an exciting leap into the possibilities of musical theater."
