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? In the first show of Hartford's 2016-2017 Bushnell Broadway Series, IF/THEN, one woman finds herself at the intersection of choice and chance, and takes audiences on a journey guided by the whims of fate.

BWW Review: Fabulous Voices Can't Save Dull, Unoriginal IF/THEN at PPACBWW Review: Fabulous Voices Can't Save Dull, Unoriginal IF/THEN at PPAC
by Robert Barossi - Jun 16, 2016

It's always a challenge to find a fresh, new, innovate way to tell a story. It seems at times like every story out there has already been told so the only option is to tell it again, but tell it differently.
