“Normal” Reviews: Mixed To Poz

normal6001Because it got a terrific review from the New York Times, the new Broadway musical “Next To Normal” will be talked about by some people in terms of “rave reviews.” But here’s a reality check: the Daily News was also a rave; the New York Post was very mixed; Variety was mixed-to-positive; the Hollywood Reporter is quite negative; the theater websites are generally positive. It would be accurate rather than hype-y to say that “Next To Normal” received mixed-to-positive notices. I’ll post my FT review as soon as it’s online.
