If Then Musical 2016 Updates and News
If/Then is a brand new Broadway musical with original music and story from the Tony Award-winning creators of the Pulitzer Prize-winning production Next to Normal, Brian Yorkey and Michael Greif. The musical chronicles the story of middle-aged urban planner, Elizabeth, who returns to New York City for a second lease on life. The play explores the interplay of fate and coincidence by displaying the two paths that Elizabeth could potentially take in her new life. The audience gets to witness her two different realities which yield completely divergent results, consequences and blessings before the ever-changing backdrop of Manhattan.
Audiences will relate with the musical's contingency to our time, as current references and costumes abound, while hipsters, musicians, friends and partners, both gay and straight, comprise the playbook. It’s a story of friendship, independence, love and career choices, all entwined by the connections we make and granted by the indefiniteness of human possibility--not to mention powerhouse vocals and fresh new songs performed by the stellar original cast.
