Most daily decisions (Paper or plastic? Shaken or stirred?) are notably un-freighted with fate. Then, at one fork in the road, you sense the universe holding its breath while you make up your mind. When Elizabeth, the central character in If/Then, comes to such a hinge moment one sunny afternoon in a New York park, the magic of musical theater enables her to take both paths. As creators Tom Kitt and Brian Yorkey (Next to Normal) thread between Liz and Beth's lifelines, both women ponder the roads not taken. But what will happen when their paths unexpectedly reunite?
