If/Then Hits Charlotte Next Week!

By Kitty JanvrinJul 11, 2016

Some mornings, it feels like the choice between a caramel frappuccino and a green tea is monumental - and who knows? It just might be, according to the musical If/Then, coming to Charlotte next week. If you loved the "choose your own adventure" books as a kid, then you'll find intrigue in If/Then, a contemporary musical about the many different paths life can take. 

IfTheJackieBurns0138r.jpgFollow Elizabeth as she looks at what her life would be as Liz, the family-oriented romantic, and alternatively, as Beth, the ambitious city planner. As her life paths diverge and criss-cross, Elizabeth begins to understand that while part of life is indeed choice, chance throws in its own surprises. 

With an energetic, moving score by Tom Kitt and Brian Yorkey, the Tony-winning creators of Next to Normal, If/Then is a "smart, deeply touching and big-hearted new musical!" (The Washington Post).

So, if every decision could truly be life-changing, missing this show is not a risk you want to take. Before you head to the theater next week, take our short quiz to better acquaint yourself with Beth and Liz and see whose path you might follow!

  1. Here's an easy decision to start you off: a) glasses or b) no glasses?
  2. Friends might describe you as a: a) hopeless romantic. b) workaholic.
  3. Your phone has been ringing off the hook all day. One last call, and you decide to: a) ignore it. b) just answer it.
  4. At this moment in your life, you place more emphasis on a) love or b) career.
  5. And finally, would you be more inclined to spend a day in the park with a) Kate, a new friend you've just met, or b) Lucas, an old friend from college?
