BACKSTAGE BROADWAY: BE MORE CHILL
Monday, April 15 at 7PM in The Loreto Theater
Presented by The Sheen Center
On April 15, the Sheen Center's new Backstage Broadway series continues when Alexander Gemignani looks at the runaway success of the new musical Be More Chill, which began life as a young adult novel, was converted into a musical that debuted at a regional theater in New Jersey, became a cult phenomenon with teens and young adults when the cast album was released, opened off-Broadway and had a sold-out run, and transferred to Broadway. Guests are stars Will Roland, George Salazar, Stephanie Hsu, and Jason Tam, who will also perform songs from the show, and Joe Iconis ("Smash," The Black Suits, Broadway Bounty Hunter), who wrote the music and lyrics. $30/$40/$50
