Two River Theater Kicks Off New Plaza Players Series

(RED BANK, NJ) -- Two River Theater kicked off their summer season with the brand-new Plaza Players Series featuring Tony-Nominated writer and composer Joe Iconis (Be More Chill, Love in Hate Nation), Lauren Marcus (Be More Chill, Love in Hate Nation) and band members Seth Eliser (ONCE), Eric William Morris (Be More Chill, The Ballad of Little Jo, Songbird), and Nygel D. Robinson (Beau: The Musical). Special guest performers included George Salazar (Be More Chill) and Jason SweetTooth Williams (Be More Chill). 

Audiences raved over the performances saying it was the “best night in a very, very long time” and “a truly funny, energetic and joyous celebration of a return to almost normal!”. Throughout the weekend they enjoyed select music from Be More Chill, which originated at Two River Theater, original music by Lauren Marcus and solo songs by Joe Iconis on piano.

Full Plaza Players performance schedule can be seen here.
