The event celebrates the vinyl edition of the show's original cast album, which was recorded during its 2015 world premiere at Two River Theater in New Jersey.
The mini-concert will feature cast members from the Two River production, including Gerard Canonico, Katlyn Carlyson, Stephanie Hsu, Lauren Marcus, and George Salazar. They will be backed by Iconis on piano.
Canonico, Carlyson, Hsu, Marcus, and Salazar repeated their performances in the recent Off-Broadway run, which starred Will Roland and Jason Tam. (Will Connolly and Eric William Morris are heard on the recording.)
The vinyl packaging incorporates new illustrative designs, color discs, and a booklet with lyrics, production photos and new liner notes from Iconis.
Be More Chill begins Broadway previews at the Lyceum Theatre February 13, 2019, ahead of a March 10 opening night.
Featuring a score by Iconis and a book by Joe Tracz, Be More Chill is based on Ned Vizzini’s novel about an average teenager who takes a pill purported to make people more—you guessed it—chill.
