BWW Reviews: Bipolar Disorder Drives the Beat in a NEXT TO NORMAL Household
(5/18/2013) - Kitt's score and Brian Yorgey's book and lyrics combine for one of the deepest and moving shows to hit a Broadway stage.

That sandwich-making scene in the opening act is terrific as directed by Janine Molinari with De Laurentis skillfully portraying the frenzied breakdown as Diana tries to cope.
