Idina Menzel returning to Broadway in 'If/Then'
It was announced Thursday (Feb. 28) that Menzel will reteam with "Rent" director Michael Greif for "If/Then," a new musical about a woman, Elizabeth, who is about to turn 40 and decides to move to New York City looking for a fresh start in her life. The press release says the show is about "how choice and chance collide and we learn to love the fallout."
Menzel says in a statement that she's "thrilled to have finally found ... an original musical with a complex, flawed and surprising central character," which she cannot wait "to bring to life onstage."
"If/Then" will have its world debut in the fall of 2013 at Washington's National Theatre and then will open on Broadway in the spring of 2014.
