This review pertains to the theater itself, but I'm borrowing a line from If/Then, which I recently saw here. Beautiful old Broadway theater, orchestra is steeply "banked" so sight lines are terrific. Great acoustics. Layout is a little different, which means a bar (as are several souvenir stands) is on the same level as the seats, different from a lot... More

I went to see If/Then. The ticket I had was a rear mezzanine . Even up there I was able to see and hear the play very well . The decor of the theater is beautiful . I would recommend this play for all to see. I believe that it will be closing soon.

Anthony Rapp and Idina Menzel (Mark & Maureen in RENT) are together again in a wonderful story that follows two different directions a life may go based on a single decision. Songs were awesome as well as the cast. One scene/song is titled "What the f***?" So you decide if you want to sit through it with teenage/younger family members.... More

Gorgeous theatre with very comfortable seating! The waiting line for the ladies room at intermission is quite long as there are a small # of toilets - but it moves efficiently.

Went to see If/Then and was not disappointed with the show! We had front row center seats and our legs were touching the stage we were so close. The stage is very high so it is an obstruction as you are trying to watch the performance. We enjoyed the show but it would have been better a few rows back.... More

I saw IF/THEN last night in the theater. We had orchestra seats with a good view of the stage. The set design of IF/Then was amazing. I loved the mirror ceiling effect. of the play. As other reviewers pointed out - no lobby and it gets very crowed during intermission. Also, the theater got very warm. After the show, the... More

I recently did a trip to NY where I saw 7 shows in 5 days (Motown, Avenue Q, Wicked, If/Then, Aladdin, Phantom and Matilda). Although the actors and Miss Menzel were AMAZING, I kept getting distracted by the cramped seating, which was a bummer because you need to pay close attention due to the dual story-lines happening. I am 6'... More

I loved the musical. If/then is a great show about choices. The theater itself was very pretty. There is almost no lobby. When you walk in you go straight to your section. What really bothered me were the seats. We are a tall family, there was zero leg room in my seats. I felt as if my knees were bothering... More

Fabulous cast, great story line. The voices are so powerful. First time I was there there was an understudy for Idina Menzel, and she was amazing. What was even more amazing, the theater let us watch the play, but because Idina cancelled at the last minute, they let everyone come a second time when she returned. That was a very... More
