In advance of the musical's New York premiere this July, Be More Chill composer Joe Iconis will sit down with the show's producer, Jennifer Ashley Tepper, and co-stars Lauren Marcus and George Salazar at Subculture June 3 to chat about the upcoming Off-Broadway production, their creative lives, and more.
The discussion will be moderated by Little Known Facts podcast host and actor Ilana Levine, and will kick off at 3 PM. Click here for tickets.
After the discussion, there will be a live performance of songs from the musical as well as a Q&A session. The afternoon is co-produced by Levine and John Zeitoun, with proceeds benefiting Everytown for Gun Safety.
As previously reported, Be More Chill, which features a score by Iconis and a book by Joe Tracz, will begin performances July 26 at the Irene Diamond Stage at the Pershing Square Signature Center.
The musical had an extended world-premiere run at New Jersey's Two River Theater in 2015, and has since amassed a healthy fan following online (it became Tumblr’s second most talked-about musical on its platform last year, after Hamilton).
Based on the novel by Ned Vizzini, Be More Chill is a musical about high school, popularity, and a tiny supercomputer that may just be the answer to a teenager’s dreams.
