CINCINNATI, OH – June 25, 2018 — Sunset Players performs the Cincinnati community theater premiere of the musical If/Then, featuring music by Tom Kitt with lyrics and book by Brian Yorkey, at the Arts Center at Dunham from July 6-21.
With unforgettable songs and a deeply moving story by the Pulitzer Prize- and Tony Award-winning creators of Next to Normal, If/Then is a fascinating, ambitious and original musical that simultaneously follows one woman’s two possible life paths, painting a vivid portrait of the lives that we lead, as well as the lives that we might have led. Elizabeth, a city planner, moves back to New York to restart her life in the city of infinite possibilities. When her carefully designed plans collide with the whims of fate, Elizabeth’s life splits into two parallel paths. If/Then follows both stories simultaneously, as this modern woman faces the intersection of choice and chance.
Sunset Players’ production of If/Then is directed by Jerry Yearout with music direction by Allen Lindsey.
The cast includes:
- Aubrey Wilson as Liz/Elizabeth
- Brenden Blackburn as Josh
- Kevin Bell as Lucas
- Joy Rolland-Oba as Kate
