Jackie Burns (former Elphaba – Broadway, 1st Ntl. Tour) and Charles Hagerty (former ensemble, u/s Fiyero – 2nd Ntl. Tour, Chicago) have joined the cast of the upcoming Broadway musical, IF/THEN. Ms. Burns is the standby for the role of Elizabeth, played by Idina Menzel (original Elphaba – West End, Broadway, Pre-Broadway) and Mr. Hagerty is a swing and understudy for the role of Josh.
According to press notes, IF/THEN is a “contemporary musical that follows Elizabeth as she rebuilds her life in New York, a city of endless possibilities.”
IF/THEN is currently playing a pre-Broadway engagement at Washington D.C.’s National Theatre through December 8, with an official opening scheduled for November 24. IF/THEN will begin previews at Broadway’s Richard Rodgers Theatre on March 5, 2014, with an official opening on March 27.
