National Tour of If/Then Continues in California
The show begins performances at the Segerstrom Center for the Arts tonight.
Elizabeth is a city planner who has moved back to New York in the hopes of reinventing her life in a place of infinite possibilities. However, all of her plans go awry when fate gets in the way. From there two distinct paths and futures emerge for Elizabeth. The musical follows both journeys simultaneously and shows the conundrum of choice and chance in the life of the modern woman.
