Get the details on the inspiration behind this new, ambitious production
If/Then is a contemporary new musical starring Elizabeth, a city planner who moves back to New York to restart her life. But 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.
