Idina Menzel to star in If/Then's US Tour!

Following the conclusion of her 2015 world concert tour, it has been announced that Idina Menzel will reprise her Tony-nominated performance as Elizabeth in If/Then during selected dates of the show's upcoming 2015/16 U.S. Tour.

Menzel will appear as Elizabeth for the following engagements:
  • Denver’s Buell Theatre (October 13-19)
  • Seattle’s Paramount Theatre (November 3-8)
  • San Francisco’s SHN Orpheum Theatre (November 10-December 6)
  • Los Angeles’ Pantages Theatre (December 8-January 3)
  • San Diego’s Civic Theatre (January 5-10)
  • Tempe’s Gammage Auditorium (January 12-17)
  • Costa Mesa’s Segerstrom Center for the Arts (January 19-24)

If/Then closed on Broadway in March, completing a twelve month run. Featuring music by Kitt and and a book and lyrics by Yorkey, If/Then tells the story of Elizabeth, a woman on the verge of turning 40 who returns to New York City to make a fresh start.

Producer David Stone said: "I am thrilled that Idina will be playing these select cities, in the time-honored touring tradition established by Broadway's leading stars like Angela Lansbury, Yul Brynner, and Ethel Merman. I look forward to having audiences discover and embrace If/Then and to give Broadway fans across the country the unique opportunity to see a genuine superstar at the height of her powers, in a role that was literally tailored for her."

Further casting for the tour is yet to be announced.
