ONE NIGHT ONLY! MON, NOV 4 at 7PM!
It’s 2015 and Jeff and Judy are right where they belong: waiting outside the stage door of the Broadway musical If/Then to get Idina Menzel’s autograph. But she never fucking comes out. And the conversation they have while they wait will change the course of their lifelong friendship forever. Warning: Beware of tourists.

At MCC our mission is to provoke conversations that have never happened and otherwise never would.
The power of the work we do is often in the unexpected and unpredictable moments that leave audiences talking long after they leave the building.
In this spirit, we make a concerted effort to not give away anything that could detract from the overall experience of discovery. We understand this is not always ideal for those who prefer to know exactly what to expect before they arrive, particularly if there are themes and content that may cause distress. Our Audience Services team is always happy to discuss the specific themes and topics of any of our productions with you in-depth and one-on-one before you book your tickets. Call us at 212-727-7722 ext 224 or email us at [email protected] anytime.
