In order to accommodate Idina Menzel's rehearsal and travel schedule as she performs the National Anthem at the Super Bowl on Sunday, February 1, the Broadway production of If/Then will shut down from January 27-February 1, with performances resuming on Tuesday, February 3.

Written by Tom Kitt and Brian Yorkey, If/Then tells the story of Elizabeth, a woman who moves back to New York City with the intention of starting fresh as she approaches 40. The story follows two separate paths that Elizabeth's life could take: one as a successful city planner, the other as a wife and mother. It will end its run at the Richard Rodgers Theatre on March 22 after 9 previews and 401 performances. Michael Greif directs the production.

If/Then also stars Tony winner LaChanze, Anthony Rapp, James Snyder, Jerry Dixon, Jenn Colella, Jason Tam, Tamika Lawrence, Joe Cassidy, Miguel Cervantes, Curtis Holbrook, Tyler McGee, Ryann Redmond, Joe Aaron Reid, Gabrielle Ruiz, Ann Sanders, Marc de la Cruz, Charles Hagerty, Janet Krupin, and Pearl Sun.

Menzel received Tony, Drama Desk, and Outer Critics Circle Award nominations for her performance. Kitt and Yorkey's score also received a Tony nomination. The show features choreography by Larry Keigwin, set design by Mark Wendland, costume design by Emily Rebholz, lighting design by Kenneth Posner, and sound design by Brian Ronan.
