The musical has music by Kitt, with book and lyrics by Yorkey. The writers earned the Tony Award and Pulitzer Prize for penning Next to Normal.

It marks Menzel's first return to Broadway since her Tony-winning run in the 2003 musical Wicked.
Next to Normal and Rent director Michael Greif will helm the production that will premiere in an out-of-town engagement at Washington, DC's National Theatre Nov. 5-Dec. 8. It officially opens Nov. 24.
If/Then will subsequently begin Broadway previews March 4, 2014, towards a March 27, 2014, at the Richard Rodgers Theatre.
