After getting their feet wet in our nation’s capital, Idina Menzel and the cast of If/Then are heading to Broadway this spring three days later than initially announced. The new musical will now open on March 30 at the Richard Rodgers Theatre (it was originally slated for a March 27 opening). If/Then, directed by Michael Greif, will begin Broadway previews on March 5.
Featuring music, lyrics and book by Next to Normal scribes Tom Kitt and Brian Yorkey, If/Then tells the story of Elizabeth (Menzel), a woman on the verge of turning 40 who returns to New York City to make a fresh start. If/Then premiered at the National Theatre in Washington, D.C. in November 2013.
In addition to Menzel, If/Then stars LaChanze, Anthony Rapp, James Snyder, Jerry Dixon, Jenn Colella, Jason Tam and Tamika Lawrence. The ensemble includes Joe Cassidy, Miguel Cervantes, Curtis Holbrook, Stephanie Klemons, Tyler McGee, Ryann Redmond, Joe Aaron Reid and Ann Sanders.
