If you told me that If/Then has a monopoly of Broadway’s best female voices, I’d believe it. The original new musical stars Tony winners Idina Menzel and LaChanze and features powerhouse singers Jenn Colella and Tamika Lawrence.
Lawrence stars as Elena, the young protégé to Idina Menzel’s Beth. The two women are New York city planners balancing work, love and families. Below, Lawrence charts Elena’s journey from a #struggling park dweller to a hot mama back to a lady who spends her time twirling and judo kicking in the park.
"Elena Start-Of-The-Show Look"
I can be easy, breezy in the park with enough room to twirl and leg room to judo kick the mess out of somebody if they try to take my purse". #thestruggleisreal
"The Elena-Walk-About-Town look."
I love the turquoise leather jacket and gold jewelry I get to wear with this look.
"The Elena-Is-All-Grown-Up Look"
After a baby, and some serious life changes, Elena trades the biker jacket and skull rings for a sensible leather peplum too and black jeans. MILD? (Mother I’d Like to Date) #youdonthavetoanswerthat
"The Elena-Business-Mom Look"
Classy and fun at the same time. I like the palm tree blouse and blue jean. Funky-chic much?
"The Elena-I'm-Back-In-The-Park Look"
A fun summer time outfit where again, I can twirl, read a book, or Bruce Lee a beatnik who gets a little too close. Elena is a tough cookie. #didimentionthestruggleisreal?
