BWW Interview: Jackie Burns of IF/THEN at Bushnell TheatreBWW Interview: Jackie Burns of IF/THEN at Bushnell Theatre
by Joseph Harrison - Jul 25, 2016

Do you ever wonder what your life would have been like if you had made different choices? Would you have a different job? A different love? Would your life have been better, or maybe worse?

Playing, Elizabeth, the woman whose life splits into parallel paths due to one fateful choice, is Jackie Burns, a Connecticut native who is returning to her home state to bring this contemporary musical to the Bushnell stage. I caught up with Jackie to talk about the show and hear how it feels to return home with IF/THEN. (more...)

by Jay Irwin - Jul 15, 2016
