The performances in this show (are) phenomenal, but special mention of Natalie O'Donnell's Diana must be made.
Maddi Ostapiw, Theatre People


Brian Yorkey's libretto and lyrics bristle with wit and unflinching honesty, while Tom Kitt's Ton Award-winning score is packed full of songs that amplify the already heightened emotions on stage and take them to places most narratives can't reach.

The best thing about Next to Normal is that it's not afraid to plumb the depths of emotion most musicals avoid. As we expected, it's been well worth the wait.
Polly Simons, The Daily Telegraph


A set consisting of a few rostra and chalk outlines economically conveys Diana's dislocation and O'Donnell's warmth and raw honesty appeal strongly.
Deborah Jones, The Australian


This version upholds the original musical's straightforward approah to mental illness. Its ambition toward stigma-busting for those delaing with diagnosis is not lost amongst its aftershocks.

The strong ensemble of six performers illustrates the family's progression with clarity, honesty, humour and all the energy that this word demands.
Paul Nolan, ArtsHub


The cast is phenomenally brilliant.

This is a brave black musical comedy depicting the effects of mental health on family.
Gin Lee, Weekend Notes


Director Darylin Ramondo has cast the show perfectly, and her cast give very convincing performances.

Another score for the Hayes, where indie musical theatre in Sydney has never looked so good and perfectly at home.
Dee Jefferson, Timeout Sydney
