Get tickets for "Next to Normal" through NAMI

I’ve heard a lot about this musical and plan to make the trip to Denver to see it. From the Denver Center for the Performing Arts web site:
From the director of Rent comes Next to Normal, an emotional powerhouse of a musical with a thrilling contemporary score about a family trying to take care of themselves and each other. Winner of the 2010 Pulitzer Prize and three 2009 Tony Awards including Best Score, Next to Normal is the most talked about new show on Broadway having recently been chosen as “one of the year’s ten best” by major critics around the country.
Next to Normal is a musical about the emotional dynamic of a family with teenage children, specifically dealing with mental illness. There are no sexual or violent situations, but the content and themes would generally be over a younger child’s head. Age 13 and up. For more info, go here 
And this special offer comes from the newsletter of the Capitol Heights Faith Communities (my old crowd) in Denver:
Purchase your ticket for Next to Normal through NAMI, National Association for the Mentally Ill, and our friends upstairs at NAMI will receive a portion of the sale. “Next to Normal” is a story about a mother and wife who struggles with worsening bipolar disorder. The play received the 2009 Tony Award for Best Original Score, Best Orchestration and the 2009 Tony to Alice Ripley for Best Performance by a Lead Actress. Showing at the Ellie Caulkins Opera House, January 4-16, tickets are available at NAMI, 303-321-3104, and start at $28.
