Picture 76

Tony Award winning actress Idina Menzel is returning to Broadway! The “Wicked” star will return to the stage in March 2014 to play the leading role in David Stone‘s new show, “If/Then.”

The musical centers on a character named Elizabeth, who on the verge of turning 40, moves to New York. “Set against the ever-shifting landscape of modern day Manhattan, ‘If/Then’ is a romantic and original new musical about how choice and chance collide and how we learn to love the fallout,” producers said in a statement.

After making her Broadway debut in “Rent,” Menzel won a Tony award for her role in “Wicked.” She also had a recurring role on Fox’s smash TV show, “Glee.”

“I’ve experienced the beauty of working on original musicals and was eager to find a project where the material was exciting and new and spoke to my heart,” Menzel revealed in a statement. “I’m thrilled to have finally found it – an original musical with a complex, flawed, and surprising central character that I cannot wait to bring to life onstage.”
