Idina Menzel is coming to Seattle for eight performances of “IF/THEN!” This Broadway powerhouse won a Tony for her performance as Elphaba in “Wicked,” was nominated for a Tony for her performance as Maureen in “Rent” and was nominated for her performance in “IF/THEN. She also voiced the character of Elsa in the movie Frozen and played a recurring role in the TV show Glee. I’m a huge fan and can’t wait to see her in this tour, playing The Paramount in downtown Seattle November 3 – 8.
About the show: 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.
Cast includes: Idina Menzel (Wicked, Rent, Frozen, Glee), 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) who will reprise their critically-acclaimed performances in this highly anticipated musical.
The musical features the creative team that brought us the Tony Award-winning musical “Next to Normal.” The soundtrack for “IF/THEN” took the spot as the highest-charting Broadway cast recording since “Rent” in 1996. The show was nominated for a Tony Award for Best Original Score and won the Broadway.com Audience Award for Favorite New Musical and Favorite New Song. New York Magazine named the show “The best musical of the year.”
