From the Pulitzer Prize and Tony Award-winning creators of Next to Normal and starring Tony Award winner Idina Menzel (Wicked) in her much-anticipated return to the stage, If/Then is now in its final performances in DC before heading to Broadway. This engaging musical tells the story of Elizabeth, who moves back to New York in search of a fresh start. Elizabeth attempts to plan out every detail so her new life can be perfect, but unexpected choices and random events impact her world in ways she never thought possible. Menzel will be joined in the show's cast by her original Rent co-star Anthony Rapp and fellow Tony Award winner LaChanze. Learn More

I found the story very engaging and thought the performance was well cast and acted. However, there was a great deal of smoking (both cigar and cigarette) at the start of the second act. I came out of the performance with a headache and sore throat, reeking of cigar. Not an ideal performance for theater goers who are interested in breathing.
