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

The performance was adequate. We went with 2 eleven year olds and a 5 year old. They enjoyed it. They however did not like Rapunzel's curly hair. I think they expected it to be smoother, more like in the Disney movie, which was their point of reference. This fairytale needs to come up with a storyline as to how Rapunzel comes to be kidnapped and raised by a witch. The bio parents with their obsession for garden grown fresh veggies was a little too preachy. The acting a little overdone, but then it is a children's production. Sets and scenery were OK, nothing really clever or creative. To sum it up...adequate, nothing outstanding. It is a little sad to know that the theater is closing. The area and the Workhouse could use something like this.
This production is suitable for all ages.
Running time is approximately one hour.
