Tony Award®-winner IDINA MENZEL will star in the pre-Broadway world premiere of If/Then, the new musical from composer Tom Kitt, lyricist/book writer Brian Yorkey, and director Michael Greif – the creative team behind the Pulitzer Prize and Tony Award-winning musical, Next to Normal. This fall, Washington audiences will be the first to discover this exciting new musical before it arrives on Broadway.
On the verge of turning 40, Elizabeth moves to New York City, the ultimate city of possibility, intent on a fresh start – new home, new friends, and hopes for a resurgent career. But even in her carefully planned new life, the smallest decision or most random occurrence will impact her world in ways she never dreamt possible. Set against the ever-shifting landscape of modern day Manhattan, If/Then is a romantic and original new musical about how choice and chance collide and how we learn to love the fallout.
These tickets are for ROW H of the CENTER MEZZANINE.
GETTING TO THE NATIONAL THEATRE
The National Theatre is located downtown on 1321 Pennsylvania Avenue, facing Pennsylvania Avenue and overlooking Freedom Plaza.
With more than 1,000 spaces within a two block radius, there are ample parking opportunities surrounding The National Theatre. There are several parking decks available for all performances and events.
Parking fees in the downtown area vary widely, from meters and park-it-yourself lots to valet parking at nearby hotels. Handicapped parking is available at each parking location.
The following parking lots are within walking distance of the theater:
- 1220 E Street, NW – Enter on E Street between 12th and 13th Streets

Meters in the area near the theater now allow parking for up to two hours. The meters accept credit cards for charges of $1 or more. Coins, including the $1 coin, are accepted. The meter issues a timed ticket to place on your dashboard where it can be conveniently read. While this is convenient for ticket-buying and for our hour-long free programs, the meter would need to be renewed at intermission for most Mainstage performances.
Please note that The National Theatre is not responsible for parking violations or lost and stolen items from your vehicle.
Smart Parking systems provide real-time off-street parking location and availability information, a win, win, win proposition. The visitor’s experience of driving in and around Downtown is improved because smart parking reduces the uncertainty of parking location and availability. Because motorists have information to guide them directly to available parking, the environmental impact of their trip is reduced. Smart parking systems also give garage owners more management control and increased revenue potential.
Be conveniently dropped off in front of the theater by one of the many taxicab companies in the area. Note that most taxis in Washington D.C. require cash.
