Mill Mountain Theatre's Fine Cast Rocks Through 'Next To Normal'
"The show is a very good fit on Mill Mountain Theatre's intimate Waldron Stage. And it works beautifully. It's touching, funny, and a little dirty. Mill Mountain shows are the work of professionals, and it shows. Travis Kendrick directs an exceptional musical"
-Jeff DeBell, The Roanoke Times
"The standing ovation came as quickly and as spontaneously as the myriad mix of emotions that had gripped all of us from beginning to end. Outstanding Company, outstanding production!"
-Patrick Kennerly, Roanoke Theatre Critic
"Attended opening night with my granddaughter and I can honestly say this was, if not the best performance I’ve seen, certainly one of the top five – Bravo to all involved in bringing such fine work to the Star City!"
-Tim Lawhorn, MMT Patron
I was profoundly affected. I cried through the second half of Act 1 and intermission, and more than once considered leaving early. As painful as it was, I'm glad I didn't leave. As I watched the show, it gave me a deeper understanding of what others are going through - I am so incredibly grateful to Travis for the gift of this show. He conveyed complex emotions and the many different viewpoints and connections in the story masterfully through staging and movement. Last night was something I will never forget.
-Katherine Shaver, MMT Patron
