Idina Menzel stars in exhilarating new musical If/Then at the Richard Rodgers Theatre.
Tony Award winning Broadway actress Idina Menzel (Wicked) stars in this acclaimed new musical about a woman turning 40 and beginning the adventure of her life.
From the creators of the Pulitzer Prize-winning musical Next to Normal, If/Then is an extraordinary contemporary new musical that has taken Broadway by storm.
The story follows two distinct storylines in the life of Elizabeth (Idina Menzel), a city planner who moves back to New York to restart her life in the city of infinite possibilities.
When her carefully designed plans collide with the whims of fate, Elizabeth’s life splits into two parallel paths and we see both stories simultaneously as this modern woman faces the intersection of choice and chance.
