PERFORMANCES THRU TUE, MAY 24 ARE CANCELLED.

 

The year is 2015 and Jeff and Judy are right where they’re supposed to be: waiting outside the stage door of If/Then to get an autograph from the star. But the experience they have while they wait will change the course of their decades-long friendship forever.

 

Which Way To The Stage is supported by public funds from
The New York City Department of Cultural Affairs in partnership with the city council.
