Happy Opening "Next to Normal!!!#1
Posted: 2/13/08 at 5:51am
Given all the stairs and running up and down them, I'm not about to say break a leg, but...

Seriously, I hope it's great!

Foster, was that necessary? I didn't say anything about reviews. I just wished them a great opening night. Performance-wsie.

Well when you say,

Seriously, I hope it's great!

what are you referring to?

Certainly not the show. We're all well aware that you've seen it multiple times and in your opinion it is beyond great.

So what were you hoping will be great, if not the reviews?

Best of luck to the actors. They're all very talented.

I just don't have good wishes for the piece.

Heres to hoping for good reviews!

Happy opening!
And then what if you are?
What a Prince would envision?
Although how can you know who you are till you know
What you want, which you don't?
So then which do you pick:
Where you're safe, out of sight, And yourself, but where everything's wrong?
Or where everything's right And you know that you'll never belong?

EEP! happy opening NtN!!

Let the amazing reviews comeee, so that a Broadway transfer may happen! re: Happy Opening 'Next to Normal!!!


and yeah, haha, def NOT going to say "break a leg". Particularly about Aaron cause he uses that set like a jungle gym. But. GOOD LUCK! :)
I don't need a life that's normal. That's way too far away. But something next to normal would be okay. Something next to normal is what I'd like to try. Close enough to normal to get by.

Happy opening... from yet another person who thinks the show is beautiful.
Now what would you say if today I started over? Without a thing but this taped together four leaf clover And I'll pretend like everything is already alright And I'll run toward the sun till the castle's out of sight

Wow, you'd think this was the only show ever to have stairs or slippery surfaces or... *gasp* running! The melodrama from fans is going to get old reaaaally fast.

Anyway, here's to fingers crossed for good reviews for this fantastic little show.
A work of art is an invitation to love.

I can't remember the last time I was this anxious to see reviews of a show.

Here's wishing all involved a truly wonderful opening night! The show has already moved many - may it move many more! (whoa - the alliteration in that last part is out of control!)

Not to rain on anybody's parade, but I hope the Times trashes it.

So, either you thought it was the biggest piece of crap or your ex is in the show, which one is it?
