SAN DIEGO–The original Broadway stars of If/Then will join Tony Award-winner and Broadway star Idina Menzel (Wicked, Rent, Frozen and Glee) in the national tour.
Tony Award-winner LaChanze (The Color Purple, Once on This Island), Anthony Rapp (Rent, Six Degrees of Separation, You’re a Good Man, Charlie Brown) and James Snyder (Cry-Baby, Rock of Ages) will reprise their critically-acclaimed performances in seven select cities.
If/Then is an original Broadway musical which reunites composer Tom Kitt, book writer/lyricist Brian Yorkey, and director Michael Greif, the creative team behind the Pulitzer Prize and Tony Award-winning musical, Next to Normal.
“If/Then is partly about how the communities we live and work in become our families,” said producer David Stone. “The original Broadway cast was like a family, and I am very excited for the family to be reunited on tour and to give audiences outside of New York the opportunity to see these exceptional Broadway stars in the roles they created.”
If/Then is a contemporary new musical that follows two distinct storylines in the life of Elizabeth, a city planner who moves back to New York to restart her life in this city of infinite possibilities. When her carefully designed plans collide with the whims of fate, Elizabeth’s life splits into two parallel paths. If/Then follows both stories simultaneously as this modern woman faces the intersection of choice and chance.
The musical features choreography by Larry Keigwin, set design by Tony Award-Nominee Mark Wendland, costume design by Emily Rebholz, lighting design by Tony Award-Winner Kenneth Posner and sound design by Tony Award-Winner Brian Ronan.
Performances are January 5 to 10, 2016 at the San Diego Civic Theatre, 3rd and B Street in downtown San Diego.
