Break legs guys!

You've hit your stride at just the right time! The press weekend shows have been amazing. Fingers crossed for fantastic reviews ~ and that those Helen Hayes Awards are harbingers of things to come!

I can't wait to be there tonight when the music starts and this show finally opens on Broadway!

Break a leg to all the cast, crew, and creative team. Thank you for your hard work, and for all that you give to us in this show. You moved me, you made me laugh ( a lot), you made me cry, and you took me to a place where I had never gone to in a theatrical performance. I wish you much success and well deserved accolades, and a very healthy, rewarding run on Broadway. From the bottom of my heart, thank you, to all involved.

Congrats to the AMAZING cast and creative team! I am going to be on pins and needles all day awaiting the sure-to-be amazing reviews to come out today.

I'm insanely jealous of all of you who are going tonight, if only I didnt have family coming in for the night

Will do as soon as I get home! :)

I can say right now that Sunday and last night were probably the two best shows I've seen them do. They have been on fire lately! Talk about peaking at the right time!

I'm so glad this unique and truly original show has made it to Broadway. If the tourists don't flock to it, I hope this at least attracts the discerning NY theatre crowd, and anyone who wants to see something fresh, something about people. Good luck to all of them!

Jordangirl . . . .seeing it Tuesday, and CAN'T WAIT!!!!! I'm going to save your review until AFTER I see it. I really don't know anything about N2N (except I Miss The Mountains) and want to see it without any prior information. I'm expecting to be blown away!

Have fun at the opening!

Congratulations to EVERYONE involved in this show. After so many months and years of hard work, this is finally all coming true!

And like jordangirl said-- the cast peaked at JUST the right time. Last Saturday evening's performance was among best of times I've seen them perform it, and Sunday's matinee was absolutely incredible as well. I won't be there tonight but I'm sure they will knock the ball right out of the park! Break legs to everyone.

Whatever happens from here, I will never forget the gift this show and these artists have given me. I wish for them all the success in the world. But for me they've already become a memory of a lifetime, something so important and personal I have no words, and no amount of other people's words can burnish or diminish it for me.

Thank you Next to Normal. May you get back everything you've given out.

Sort of a random question. I see that some tickets are still available for tonight. Anyone happen to know if they sent any to TKTS today?

I know, I know. But I'm trying to save money and can't justify spending $110 for tonight when there are $35 seats available for tomorrow. Half off though...

Ok, sorry this is so late. I got distracted talking to people and reading the reviews (YAY for Brantley's assessment of the show, Alice, and the rest of the cast...especially Bobby!!! That makes me happy!)

The show was amazing. They were on fire. Um... I'm really not sure what else to say. It was spectacular and everything I could have wished for the cast and creative team.

I was in the last row of the mezz and went in fairly early, so I missed seeing arrivals and so forth.

I teared up as soon as the music started. There was huge applause at the blackout drum beat. Alice and Aaron had to wait a lot longer than normal to start. Huge applause after "Superboy and the Invisible Girl" and "I'm Alive" especially. And at the end of "Light", most of the audience in the mezz was on their way to their feet.

Nothing special at curtain call ~ no speeches or anything.

It was a night to remember and coming home to the mostly rave reviews just makes it better!
