We have tickets to If/Then and Heathers on the same night. Which would you see?

Neither.

If/Then and Heathers BOTH sucked.
Four Simple Rules for Attending the Theater 1. This is a nice night out. Dress accordingly. Like, no sweatpants. 2. When you enter the theater, turn off your phone. All issues with phones will be avoided this way, & you won't be verbally accosted by the cast, crew, & other patrons. 3. I did not pay dollas to hear you talk or sing. I paid dollas to see & hear gorgeous men like Norm Lewis, Ramin Karimloo & Joshua Henry. 4. Unless you have medical issues, don't eat. The wrappers are loud, & your disgusting munching is even louder. You aren't at the movies or a barn dance, baby.

I almost walked out at intermission of the opening night of If/Then. But, who really does that...(2nd act was the same).

I like both shows, although they are very different. If you adore the Heathers movie, then you know what you're in for, whereas If/Then is more philosophical and modern with some great songs and Idina really killing it on stage...

Some people dislike the dual narratives of If/Then, although an equal number of people seem to really enjoy the show, so until you have an equal number of positive and negative reviews, you're probably not getting a balanced view on that show. It does tend to be divisive, no one sort of likes it.

If both theaters used Telecharge, you could probably talk them into moving one of the shows to another date, but I think it's a Ticketmaster/Telecharge split, so you may be out of luck. That said, I would try and move Heathers to another date/time that works, since Telecharge will accommodate you more than Ticketmaster, typically.

Hmmmmm, thanks for the thoughts. Seems to be a split of opinion on the two shows. Any other thoughts? We have tickets for both shows in two days . . . still not sure which show to watch. Thanks for the help!

I'm also indifferent to both shows, but of the two I'd recommend If/Then because at least you'll see Idina's Tony nominated performance.

....but the world goes 'round

"Seems to be a split of opinion on the two shows. Any other thoughts?"

I'm not sure tickets to three shows would improve things, heh.
