Photo Coverage: Get a Sizzling First Look at IF/THEN on Stage with Idina Menzel, Anthony Rapp, LaChanze, James Snyder & More!
If/Then opens tonight in Washington, D.C. at The National Theatre and we're thrilled to present a first look at the first sizzling hot production photos from the brand-new, world premiere musical by the Pulitzer Prize and Tony Award-winning creative team behind Next To Normal, Tom Kitt (music), Brian Yorkey (book and lyrics), Michael Greif (director) and Larry Keigwin (choeographer). Next stop = Broadway and we can't wait!
The company of If/Then stars Idina Menzel, LaChanze, Anthony Rapp, James Snyder, Jerry Dixon, Jenn Colella, Jason Tam, and Tamika Lawrence alongside Joe Cassidy (Working), Miguel Cervantes (American Idiot, The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee), Curtis Holbrook (West Side Story, Xanadu), Stephanie Klemons (In The Heights), Tyler McGee (Ghost), Ryann Redmond (Bring It On), Joe Aaron Reid (Catch Me If You Can) and Ann Sanders (Leap of Faith).
If/Then also features set design by Tony Award-Nominee Mark Wendland (Next to Normal, The Merchant of Venice), costume design by Emily Rebholz (Bloody, Bloody Andrew Jackson; Vanya and Sonia and Masha and Spike), lighting design by Tony Award-Winner Kenneth Posner (Kinky Boots, Wicked) and sound design by Tony Award-Winner Brian Ronan (Next To Normal, The Book of Mormon). The production will feature musical direction by Carmel Dean and orchestrations by Tony Award-Winners Michael Starobin and Tom Kitt.
On the verge of turning 40, Elizabeth (Menzel) moves back 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. 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.
