Here is what area reviewers are saying about this production: "Next to Normal demands that the characters be portrayed as unflinchingly real, even in the midst of their weirdness and stress and notwithstanding the stylization inherent in a musical. The MCP cast passes this test with flying colors, being utterly believable throughout. " Bob Ashby, Showbizradio.net "It is a story of love, loss, commitment, worth, survival, and hope in the face of darkness. It is a compelling story about what it means to be alive and I strongly recommend that you see the McLean Community Players’ production of this show that won three 2009 Tony Awards and the 2010 Pulitzer Prize for Drama. It is truly outstanding." Kim Moeller, DCMetroTheatreArts.com

Fabulous production. The acting in this show is top notch. Incredible lighting and directing. You really should not miss this show - I thought it was better than the one I saw a few years ago at the Kennedy Center.
