If/Then at Lyric Arts of Anoka through September 23rd!

Written by the musical theatre team that gave us Next To Normal, If/Then “follows the branching paths one woman’s life may take” after leaving her husband. Our bloggers praised the musical for its originality, its poignancy and its terrific cast.
#BrettTalk praises Lyric Arts for “continuously pushing the boundaries each season with innovatively critical work” of which If/Then is only the most recent example.
“The idea of chance and almost separate realities is a concept that can be done in so many ways and If/Then makes it interesting to watch.”
One of the show’s chief draws, writes Jill at #CherryandSpoon, is Kate Beahen “who is the closest thing to Idina Menzel we have in #TCTheater…. this is a perfect role for her and she lives up to the challenge in every way.”…/09/ifthen-at-lyric-arts.html
#PlayoffthePage agrees that Kate is “spectacular” while also noting that “the entire cast is wonderful.. with much energy and strong vocals”. Mary found this musical about “choices” to be “modern and poignant”.…/review-of-if-then-at-lyric-ar…/
