For those who already love the lyrics to "Be More Chill," the internet-sensation musical that starts Broadway previews on Feb. 13, opportunity knocks. The show, with at last count 118,000 Instagram followers, is running a karaoke contest to let fans be part of the action.
To enter, send a video of yourself — the more creative the better — performing either "I Love Play Rehearsal," "The Squip Song" or "Michael in the Bathroom." For more info on deadlines, age requirements, etc. go to bemorechillmusical.com/contest.
The top 20 will be selected by creators Joe Tracz and Long Islander Joe Iconis, with fans voting for the winner via the website. "From our first readings . . . it was clear that these songs were striking a chord with audiences," Iconis said in a statement. "The thing that has been most incredible to me has been watching groups of humans singing along to these show tunes which clearly mean so much to them."
The winner will get a trip to New York City, two tickets to the show and the chance to perform the song on stage at the Lyceum Theatre. "It feels only fitting," said Iconis, "that as our little-show-that-could bops its way to Broadway, we should celebrate with the biggest singalong party ever!"
