A couple of weeks ago, I grabbed a peppermint mocha frappucino® sans the whip cream
and headed off to the Orpheum Theatre to see “If/Then”, a musical starring Idina Menzel. Yup, Queen Elsa herself!
And a what a performance it was! It’s a story about a woman named Elizabeth and the two different ways her life could have turned out – one as “Liz” and one as “Beth”. The whole “if” life went a certain way, “then” this would happen brings the audience into a whirlwind of emotions. There are laugh out loud moments, cry your eyes out moments, and moments where your heart just breaks.
The talent was fantastic. I remember hearing an interview once with Kristen Bell and the nerves she had at first about singing with Idina Menzel in the movie “Frozen”. It was a tall order to stand against, but everyone held their ground. At one point, Ms. Menzel sings the phrase “Here we go” and I could have sworn she sang “Let it go”!!! What a treat to see her live!
Afterwards, my peppermint mocha frappucino® got me craving more winter treats from Starbucks™ – so we got a couple of chestnut praline lattes, a snowman donut, and the famed cranberry bliss bar.
