The New York City arts education nonprofit Inside Broadway will present a Creating the Magic program, offering a behind-the-scenes look at the new Broadway musical Be More Chill, May 30 to over 2,000 public school students.
The 70-minute program will be presented to students from Brooklyn, the Bronx, Queens, and Manhattan at the Lyceum Theatre (149 W. 45th St.) at 11 AM and 1:45 PM.
Students will enjoy set, lighting, sound, and prop demonstrations, musical performances from the cast, and a Q&A session.
The musical, featuring a score by Tony nominee Joe Iconis and a book by Joe Tracz, plays the Lyceum Theatre. Directed by Stephen Brackett and based on the novel by Ned Vizzini, Be More Chill tells the story of Jeremy Heere, an awkward high schooler who succumbs to the influence of the Squip, a pill-shaped supercomputer purported to make its user more chill.
