"If/Then": a terrible title, to begin with. This is a musical that largely wastes the considerable talent of a wonderful group of performers, all with great voices. No... continued

The cast, songs, and set are amazing! It was quite an enjoyable evening. Few minor tweaks to plot and this show will go far.

Let me get The Good out of the way first: I have wanted to see both Idina and Anthony Rapp on stage live for YEARS and I finally got my... continued

Goldstar experience was fine. Idina has a lovely voice, although that was wearing thin by the end. I don't see how this show can possibly make it to Broadway in its... continued

Despite some good performances, this show was an overly convoluted mess that needs some serious editing and much better staging!

For those that hate the trend of "movies... continued

Interesting concept but a little hard to follow. Very cool set design. It was the first night so some leeway can be given but I thought the cast (and Idina) didn't... continued

Superb set, definitely Tony material. Good performances and good music in the first act.
Negatively the first act is too long and at times confusing. Definitely tuned to smug New Yorkers and their life styles.

This was a well written and well performed production. The script was witty and current. Idina Menzel was wonderful as always!

We LOVE Idina Menzel, and will see her live any chance we get!! This was a preview, and I've read that it's been tweaked and improved for Broadway

Ended up seeing If/Then five times, twice via Goldstar. Fantastic show and the cast was as close to perfection as I've seen. Although I love the show, there are some... continued

What a cool show! The plot/storyline was a bit hard to follow and I was very familiar with the premise. Hard to tell which reality was which. There needs to be a musical... continued

Idina Menzel is such a wonderful actress. All the actors in the show were outstanding. An entertaining look at one persons life from two views.

My husband and I love this theater and the show was great. Idina Menzel was beyond fabulous! What a voice. It will be a smash on Broadway. So glad we saw it.
We ate at the JW Marriott and enjoyed it. lovely evening.

Seats were quite good--row "S" in the center of the rear orchestra--I thank "Red Velvet" for that! And we really liked the performance! Staging was creative, solo voices... continued

I'm glad I read the WaPo review before going to the performance because it laid out for me the "two path" plot device. Otherwise I fear I would have been a bit lost... continued
