On Thursday, May 30 leading NYC arts education nonprofit Inside Broadway (Executive Director, Michael Presser) and the groundbreaking Broadway musical BE MORE CHILL will present special Creating the Magic programs offering an exclusive, behind-the-scenes look at Broadway featuring select members of the BE MORE CHILL cast & production crew. These exclusive 70-minute programs will be offered to 2,000 NYC public school students from Brooklyn, The Bronx, Queens & Manhattan at the Lyceum Theatre (149 West 45th Street) on 5/30 at 11am and 1:45pm.

Providing a truly unique theatrical experience on 5/30, Inside Broadway’s Creating the Magic program will be presented to thousands of New York City public school students who will get a special behind-the-scenes look at the inner world of Broadway and learn about career opportunities in the theater. From exciting set, lighting, sound & prop demonstrations, musical performances from the cast and a Q&A session, attendees will have an exclusive look at how a Broadway show runs and operates.
What if popularity came in a pill? Would you take it, no questions asked? In Be More Chill, achieving that elusive “perfect life” is now possible thanks to some mysterious new technology-but it comes at a cost that’s not as easy to swallow. What could possibly go wrong? Blending the contemporary with retro sci-fi, this thrillingly exciting, comically subversive, and deeply felt new musical, now nominated for Best Musical by the Drama Desk, Drama League, Outer Critics Circle, and Lucille Lortel Awards, takes on the competing voices in all of our heads – and ultimately proves, there’s never been a better time in history to be yourself…especially if you’re a loser…geek…or whatever.
“It’s a great honor to present this exciting new Broadway production in our Creating the Magic series” says Inside Broadway’s Executive Director Michael Presser – www.insidebroadway.org
