Denver audiences who saw Wicked when it visited in 2007 saw Cliffton Hall (Fiyero) and Deedee Magno Hall (Nessarose) in principal roles.

If/Then is an original Broadway musical which reunites composer Tom Kitt, book writer/lyricist Brian Yorkey, and director Michael Greif, the creative team behind the Pulitzer Prize and Tony Award-winning musical Next to Normal.

Menzel, LaChanze, Rapp and Snyder will launch the national tour at the Buell Theatre in Denver from Oct. 13-25, and will then perform the show in Seattle, San Francisco, Los Angeles, San Diego, Tempe (Ariz.) and Costa Mesa (Calif.) The tour will then continue across North America through August 2016 with a new principal cast. 

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.
