Idina Menzel joins 'If/Then' national tour
Idina Menzel concluded her Broadway with If/Then when the show closed in March. But the “Let It Go” singer will join the musical on its national tour in October, Menzel announced on her website this week.
She’ll reprise her role as Elizabeth beginning in October at Denver’s Buell Theatre, and will tour with the show to six more cities through Jan. 24, 2016. If/Then opened in March 2014, and received a Tony nomination for Best Original Score. Menzel was nominated for Best Lead Actress in a Musical for her role as an urban planner who moves to New York City and imagines how her life would differ if she made alternate life choices.
Menzel’s Rent costar Anthony Rapp joined the Broadway cast as Lucas, a college friend of Elizabeth’s who now works as a community organizer in New York City. Michael Greif serves as director, with choreography by Larry Keigwin and music by Tom Kitt.
The national tour ticks off on Oct. 13, and tickets to all of Menzel’s performances are only available to season subscribers.
