BWW Reviews: IF/THEN at Aronoff features great talent, but loses its wayBWW Reviews: IF/THEN at Aronoff features great talent, but loses its way
by Kate Elliott - Feb 4, 2016

IF/THEN begins well enough with a compelling musical number. The song 'What If?' weaves a tapestry of tight harmonies and interesting staging. It immediately establishes the premise: a woman paralyzed by the song's title question proceeds to live out two possible life paths for the audience. Think 'Sliding Doors,' but with more supporting characters and a lot more songs. Unfortunately, this ambitious multi-layered premise proves too much for the authors, and the show ultimately loses its way. (more...)

BWW Review: FROZEN on IceBWW Review: FROZEN on Ice
by Harmony Wheeler - Feb 4, 2016

The fame of the phenomenon-hit film "Frozen" has already landed it Broadway and theme park versions in the works. But there was one venue for which the popular musical was more than meant. Given its lead female's "cool" powers, it was only a matter of time before Elsa, Anna, and all their friends received their own Disney on Ice show. In usual Disney style, "Frozen" fills the arena with magical special effects and animated storytelling. (more...)

BWW Review: Seeing IF/THEN is a Choice Cincinnati Should MakeBWW Review: Seeing IF/THEN is a Choice Cincinnati Should Make
by Kelly Thompson - Feb 3, 2016

If/Then, just by the way it is written, will always be about if the woman playing Elizabeth/Liz/Beth is on or not.  While the show was on Broadway Elizabeth was played by Idina Menzel so obviously people will always want to compare.  I for one, am not going to do that because Jackie Burns was too amazing. She completely sold both story lines and sang her face off.  The vocal performance that this character requires is no easy feat and Burns made it look effortless. (more...)

BWW Review: IF/THEN at Winspear Opera HouseBWW Review: IF/THEN at Winspear Opera House
by Kyle Christopher West - Jan 29, 2016

When IF/THEN debuted on Broadway in March 2014, it reunited original RENT stars Idina Menzel and Anthony Rapp with RENT director Michael Grief. Brian Yorkey and Tom Kitt, whose 2008 rock musical NEXT TO NORMAL had received the Pulitzer Prize, wrote the much-anticipated show, and New York celebrated the team's brisk New York return. Although the show received mostly mixed-to-positive reviews, it lasted a mere 430 performances, despite mother-daughter duos flocking to see Menzel upon the icy heels of FROZEN's success. (more...)

by Nicole Rosky - Jan 25, 2016

10,512,000 minutes. It might not sound as catchy, but it's a number that certainly makes an impression. 10,512,000 minutes ago, the world was changed forever when a new musical called RENT rocked New York for the first time. It was January 25, 1996 when Mimi, Roger, Mark, Collins, Maureen, Benny, Joanne and Angel came to life onstage at the 150-seat New York Theater Workshop- a run that would precede the show's 12-year stint on Broadway.

BWW Interview: Jackie Burns of IF/THEN at Winspear Opera HouseBWW Interview: Jackie Burns of IF/THEN at Winspear Opera House
by Kyle Christopher West - Jan 21, 2016

Over the past few years, the theatre community has been quietly buzzing about the stage work of Jackie Burns, the young actress whose credits include Elphaba in Broadway's WICKED, a soloist in the tribe of the 2009 HAIR revival, the original off-Broadway production of ROCK OF AGES, and most recently, as standby to IDINA MENZEL (WICKED, RENT) in the 2013 Broadway musical IF/THEN. This week, during her lunch break from rehearsals in New York City, Jackie sat down to chat with me about revisiting the show, and the pressure of stepping in for the FROZEN star. (more...)

BWW Review: Idina Menzel Concludes Final Week in IF/THEN Tour at OC's Segerstrom CenterBWW Review: Idina Menzel Concludes Final Week in IF/THEN Tour at OC's Segerstrom Center
by Michael L. Quintos - Jan 21, 2016

Much like the opening night performance I experienced at the show's debut at the Pantages Theatre in Hollywood last month, I was once again blown away by Menzel's incredible musical gifts with the show's opener at Segerstrom Center for the Arts in Costa Mesa (which plays through January 24). Even better: she is still surrounded by the same equally astonishing support cast, particularly her original Broadway co-stars LaChanze, Anthony Rapp, and James Snyder. So how was the experience this time? While my initial reaction to the show itself hovered somewhere in the middle, I have to admit that I was genuinely surprised by how much I enjoyed the show the second time around. Dare I say, I even think I *loved* it more. (more...)
