NEW YORK: The new musical "If/Then" is all about imagining different scenarios, so let's get straight to it: If you love Idina Menzel, then go see it -- she tears the rafters off the theater while going through a mid-life crisis.At one point in a recent preview, a pair of discarded socks from a previous scene sat on the stage forlornly as the musical trundled on, a sign that it lacks a certain seasoning despite a pre-Broadway stop in Washington, D.C.Like choosing this show instead of a night in front of "The Good Wife".Menzel stars as Elizabeth, an urban planner who arrives in New York City in her late 30s after a failed marriage. To tell the heroines apart, Menzel wears glasses as one of them, like Clark Kent.Not even a little hip-hop for a show that celebrates an urban landscape?Yes, the always-welcome Rapp is reunited with his old "Rent" co-star Menzel.Kitt is always best with Menzel singing.So, the overall answer is, if you really, really need to see and hear Menzel, then go and watch an actress wonderfully giving it her all.
