The original Broadway cast of If/Then will be recording an album of the show’s tunes, with Masterworks Broadway aiming for a June 3, 2014 release of the original cast recording. Idina Menzel (or as John Travolta knows her, Adele Dazeem) leads the Broadway production, heading up If/Then and marking her return to the stage with the musical directed by Michael Greif. Tom Kitt wrote the music and Brian Yorkey handled the book and lyrics.
If/Then will open at The Richard Rodgers Theatre on March 30, 2014.
In addition to Menzel, the cast includes LaChanze (Tony Award-winner for The Color Purple), Anthony Rapp (Rent), James Snyder (Cry-Baby), Jerry Dixon (tick, tick…Boom!), Jenn Colella (Chaplin, ), Jason Tam (A Chorus Line), Tamika Lawrence (Matilda), and Jackie Burns (Wicked). Joe Cassidy, Miguel Cervantes, Curtis Holbrook, Stephanie Klemons, Tyler McGee, Ryann Redmond, Joe Aaron Reid, Ann Sanders, Marc delaCruz, Charles Hagerty, Janet Krupin and Pearl Sun are also featured in the musical.
Larry Keigwin handled the choreography, Mark Wendland designed the sets, and Emily Rebholz is the costume designer.
If/Then is an original new musical that follows Elizabeth as she rebuilds her life in New York, a city of infinite possibilities. By the Pulitzer and Tony Award-winning creators of Next to Normal, this contemporary musical is set where choice and chance collide. In one moment, Elizabeth will lead parallel lives. This is the story of both.
