Just so we don't piss everyone else off with new threads, this can be the homebase for everything N2N!

I've been following N2N for about five years or so and could not be more thrilled it's finally where it deserves to be: Broadway.

I LOVE NEXT TO NORMAL!
...What happened next, was stranger still, a woman breathless and afraid, appeared out of the night, completely dressed in white. She had a secret she would tell, of one who had mistreated her. Her face and frightened gaze, my mind cannot erase...But then she ran from view. She looked so much like you...

The best new musical of the season IMO!
"In theater, the process of it is the experience. Everyone goes through the process, and everyone has the experience together. It doesn't last - only in people's memories and in their hearts. That's the beauty and sadness of it. But that's life - beauty and the sadness. And that is why theater is life." - Sherie Rene Scott

Agreed. And I didn't think anything would top BILLY.

I'm seeing it April 21st and it can not come soon enough. I have loved this show since it was Feeling Electric and to see it finally make it to Broadway is amazing.

I saw the show last night and it was an absolutely FANTASTIC experience. Loved it so much.

I totally agree that it's the best new musical of the season and the performances were just... amazing. Alice for the Tony, without a doubt!

I'm definitely planning on seeing it again in the extremely near future.
It only hurts when I breathe...

Oh, I have a question for everyone. Will 2nd row be too close to the stage?

most of the action takes place on the main level but there will be times when you'll have to look up to see what's going on. but it won't be too close.

The theatre is small, so there really aren't any bad seats, i don't even think the boxes (which i believe are being used as part of the rush seats) have any obstructed view of the action.


If I had to pick where I thought the BEST seats were, it would probably be front row center in the MEZZ.

I was just worried that the stage might be really high, and that we would be looking up the whole time, like sitting first row in a movie theatre.

first row wasn't bad, only had to really look up for part of I'm Alive

I wasn't down there, but the stage didn't look that high, certainly nothing like it is at the St. James. It would probably be a similar to sitting in the front row at the Nederlander

this the best picture i could find to show the stage height. (the front of the stage doesn't have those points for this show)

Any idea if this will be playing in November? I'd love to see it when I'm most likely going to be in NYC for a psychology conference (and how appropriate, as well.) re: 'Perfect for US': The NEXT TO NORMAL love thread! I really like what I've heard of the music so far, and of course the subject matter is interesting to me as well.
Jimmy, what are you doing here in the middle of the night? It's almost 9 PM!
