How did you first become obsessed with Jennifer Damiano?

I’m kind of obsessed with this question.

Okay flashback to four years ago, my freshman year of high school. My choir was going to see next to normal on tour. At first, I heard it was a better show if you knew nothing about it (because of the plot twist) so I didn’t look it up. But a few weeks later, I was on Yahoo Answers asking what musical theatre songs I should learn to play on guitar (I had gotten a guitar in my “singer-songwriter” stage but then realized by true passion was theatre). Someone suggested Superboy and the Invisible Girl so I decided to check it out. So Jenn was the first thing I had ever learned about the show and I FELL IN LOVE. Superboy and the Invisible Girl is still my #1 played song. I remember looking at all the songs on iTunes and wondering why she wasn’t in more because of how amazing she was. As I got more into the show, I learned more about all the cast, including her. Four years later, I’m still just as obsessed.



Get to know: Jennifer Damiano



Someone has drunk texted me like everyday of the past week



Thoughts on the colours and the parallels in next to normal? Dan and Gabe are often both wearing red in scenes together, Natalie and Diana in blue and at the end they're all wearing blue. Any ideas or thoughts about this? (gabeebert sent me to your ask box by the way :) )

(I did indeed see gabeebert's post and was surprised and flattered to have been mentioned in it while trying to figure out what the heck my thoughts on N2N color symbolism are xD But yes, I do love analyzing this show, whether or not I'm good at it haha).

I actually like the answers that have been given, and I think it’s interesting how the variation in the colors used may reflect different dynamics between the characters. In I Am the One, for example, Diana’s intense emotions are dressed in bright red, while Dan and Gabe are wearing matching shades of cooling light blue, seemingly reflecting Diana’s conflict over who can be her comforter and protector. In Maybe, Diana and Natalie wear similarly dark outer layers, while Natalie’s version is lighter (grey rather than black), which seems to symbolize “I see me in you” (and possibly hint at Natalie’s fear of turning into her mother).

As for Light, in the Broadway version all except Diana are actually wearing varying shades of red or orange (with Diana in dark purple), and it has been suggested that the light vs. darkness in the colors may reflect the characters’ mental states at the time. There’s an interesting post on this here.

As for thoughts on the red/blue/purple motif, I think that purple - being a mixture of red and blue - seems fitting as it contains the red/blue associations with mania and depression, intensity and calm, daylight and night, etc. Some other interesting associations with these colors in N2N are listed here.
