If/Then to play at the Richard Rodgers Theatre
The Broadway premiere of If/Then - an original Broadway musical which reunites Tom Kitt (music), Brian Yorkey (book and lyrics), and Michael Greif (director), the creative team behind the Pulitzer Prize and Tony Award-winning musical, 'Next to Normal' - will open at the Richard Rodgers Theatre on 27 Mar 2014, following previews from 04 Mar 2014.
The show will star Idina Menzel, who will return to Broadway for the first time since winning the Tony Award for her performance as 'Elphaba' in the musical 'Wicked.'
Further casting, creative team, performance schedule and ticket information will be announced shortly.
Set against the ever-shifting landscape of modern day Manhattan, If/Then is a romantic and original new musical about how choice and chance collide and how we learn to love the fallout.
On the verge of turning 40, Elizabeth (Idina Menzel) moves to New York City, the ultimate city of possibility, intent on a fresh start - new home, new friends, and hopes for a resurgent career. But even in her carefully planned new life, the smallest decision or most random occurrence will impact her world in ways she never dreamt possible.
If/Then is being produced by David Stone, who produced both 'Wicked' and 'Next to Normal.'
If/Then will have its world premiere in a pre-Broadway engagement at the National Theatre in Washington, D.C., beginning preview performances on 05 Nov 2013 and opening on 24 Nov 2013, and running through to 08 Dec 2013.
