  • About If/Then

    The creative team that brought you the Pulitzer Prize-winning sensation Next to Normal comes together again on Broadway this season with a most intriguing new musical: If/Then. The reunited Next to Normal team includes Tony Award winner Tom Kitt (score), Tony nominee Brian Yorkey (book) and Tony winner Michael Greif (director). And the cast includes Tony winner Idina Menzel (Wicked, Rent), Tony winner LaChanze (The Color Purple) and acclaimed actor Anthony Rapp (Rent).

    Just like Next to Normal, If/Then is a completely original show (that is, it’s not based on a movie or novel) and tells the story of a woman named Elizabeth (Menzel), who does something quite courageous just as she’s about to turn 40: She moves to New York City in search of a fresh start. Hoping to find new friends in her new home and a jumpstart for her career, Elizabeth is deeply surprised to discover that life doesn’t always go as planned, no matter how carefully you’ve thought ahead. A chance meeting, a snap decision or an unexpected coincidence can lead you in surprising directions, for a journey you’d never imagined.

    Run time
    Two hours and 35 minutes (one intermission)

    Did you know?
    If/Then also reunites three members from the legendary original Broadway production of Rent: Idina Menzel (who played Maureen), Anthony Rapp (who played Mark) and Michael Greif (who helmed that show, like he does with this one).

    In addition to writing music for other Broadway shows like Bring It On and High Fidelity, Tom Kitt is also the leader of the totally rocking Tom Kitt Band.

    Kitt and Yorkey’s next project is a Broadway musical adaptation of the hit movie Magic Mike, which will be produced by that film’s star, Channing Tatum.
  • Fans of Next to Normal were drawn in by its richly drawn characters, sophisticated themes and rock-infused score. Many of those same elements should be at play here, so theatergoers who like to be challenged a bit emotionally (while still being entertained) should enjoy this musical a great deal.

    Good for kids?
    Since the show deals with issues facing adults nearing middle age (like career, romance and regret), this isn’t a musical little kids will enjoy or understand. But older children, especially ones who appreciate material that doesn’t pander, should be able to relate.
