Meet Joe Iconis and Be More Chill Stars at Box Office Event
Hang out with the cast of this summer's fan-favorite off-Broadway musical.
The stars of Joe Iconis and Joe Tracz's upcoming off-Broadway musical Be More Chill will greet fans at a box office event on Friday, June 8, at the Pershing Square Signature Center.
The event (3pm-5pm) will feature selfies, giveaways, and other surprises, with Iconis, director Stephen Brackett, and stars Katlyn Carlson, Lauren Marcus, Will Roland, George Salazar, and Jason SweetTooth Williams hanging out with fans and ticket buyers.
Inspired by the novel by Ned Vizzini, the musical will run July 26-September 23 at the Irene Diamond Stage. Brackett will direct, with choreography by Chase Brock.
The off-Broadway engagement will star Roland as Jeremy, alongside original cast members Gerard Canonico as Rich, Carlson as Chloe, Stephanie Hsu as Christine, Marcus as Brooke, and Salazar as Michael, and Williams as Jeremy's Dad and Mr. Reyes. Additional casting will be announced.
Be More Chill features music and lyrics by Iconis and a book by Tracz. The story is described as follows: "Jeremy Heere is your average, nothing-special teenager at Middleborough High in nothing-special New Jersey...until the day he finds out about 'The Squip.' Thus begins a journey that pits Jeremy's desire to be popular against his struggle to remain true to his authentic self." It premiered in 2015 at Two River Theater.
The creative team will include Clint Ramos (scenic design), Bobby Frederick Tilley II (costume design), Tyler Micoleau (lighting), Ryan Rumery (sound design), Emily Marshall (musical direction), and Charlie Rosen (orchestrations).
