BroadwayWorld's own Richard Ridge said of this 2008 episode of Broadway Rewind, 'I loved looking back at the musical Next to Normal and realizing the impact it has had on the musical theatre genre. We start off high a top Rockefeller Center to the Rainbow Room for The Drama League's Gala where they honored beloved producer Roger Berlind. It featured many of the stars and shows that he produced over his illustrious career.  Look for David Hyde Pierce, Marin Mazzie, Jason Danieley, Donna Murphy, Karen Ziemba and Debra Monk.'
