★★★★ "'Next to Normal' may be a complex and serious musical about a grieving woman confronting mental illness and whether or not to continue with her invasive treatments in the face of memory loss, but it's also an honest, truthful story about a family with problems but a whole lot of love for each other. It has the effect of making one determine to refocus on what really is important in life, which always is the best reason of all to find time to go to the theater. If 'Next to Normal' was a gamble for Drury Lane, it pays off beautifully in Chicago talent. Not only does the Drury Lane production compare very favorably with Michael Greif's original Broadway production but it's worth noting that Drury Lane ticket prices make the show, produced here at a Broadway-quality level, accessible to a much broader audience."–Chris Jones
