Episode 1 - Joe Iconis, Rob Rokicki, Sarah Beth Pfeifer: Experience Marianas & Love In Hate Nation

The Musicals of Tomorrow

Welcome to The Musicals of Tomorrow! This episode is part of the premiere group and features discussions about Rob Rokicki and Sarah Beth Pfiefer’s Experience Marianas’ and Joe Iconis’ Love In Hate Nation. Joe was also joined by Love In Hate Nation Two River Theater cast members Amina Faye and Kelly McIntyre. EXPERIENCE MARIANAS (by Rob Rokicki and Sarah Beth Pfeifer) - Experience Marianas is a wild sapphic rock musical adventure about one woman's journey to escape an oceanic cult. The piece is a high-octane, darkly comedic examination of systems of control and how we struggle to define our identities within them. Set aboard a ship, the show immerses our audience into the Marianas Institute, an aquatic ‘healing center’ founded by Dr. Davis “Daddy” Johnson. We are indoctrinated into the group in real-time. "Informational sessions" start off completely plausible but get progressively wilder and more fantastical, complete with pyramid schemes, sex rituals, sea monsters, and eventually murder.LOVE IN HATE NATION (by Joe Iconis) - Set in a 1960s Juvie Hall, Love in Hate Nation tells the story of young people caught between eras of a changing America. Sixteen-year old Susannah Son is carted off to the National Reformatory for Girls to get her head put on straight. There she meets the aggressively incorrigible Sheila Nail, and a relationship forms which leads to an all-out “revolution in the institution” as they attempt to break out of the boxes society has created around them. Girl Group Wall of Sound harmonies are filtered through a punk rock spirit in this rebellious and romantic new musical.Featuring performances from Sydney Farley, Amina Faye, Jasmine Forsberg, Lauren Marcus, Kelly McIntyre, Sarah Beth Pfeifer, Rob Rokicki, Lena Skeele, Emerson Mae Smith and Tatiana Wechsler Connect with Rob Rokicki:Twitter & Instagram: @rrokicksConnect with Sarah Beth Pfiefer:Twitter & Instagram: @itsmesbpConnect with Joe Iconis:Twitter & Instagram: @MrJoeIconisConnect with New York Theatre Barn: Support us: nytheatrebarn.org/give Twitter: @nytheatrebarn Instagram: @newyorktheatrebarn  Facebook.com/nytheatrebarn nytheatrebarn.org Joe’s personal Instagram: @bisforbarros Jen’s personal Instagram: @jensandler Learn more about your ad choices.

NOW WE'RE TALKING with Drew Gasparini

Joe Iconis is huggable. Joe Iconis is intimidating. Joe Iconis has amazing talent. Joe Iconis also has amazing hair. He is a darling of musical theatre, and someone I always catch myself rooting for. We ALL know that Joe Iconis is a staple in NYC with his infamous concerts featuring the “Joe Iconis Family” but did you know that Joe Iconis has a deep love for all things The Muppets? We all know Joe for his Tony nominated work for his musical adaptation of BE MORE CHILL, but did you know this show almost didn’t have a fighting chance to blow up into the phenomenon it did? The man is a legend and ALSO, a myth and it was a joy having him on the show to not only discuss life during COVID-19, hear about his amazing career and play some silly games, but he also gives some truly terrific advice to all future generations of theatre workers. So TUNE IN, and turn it the hell up! Joe Iconis is in the house, and he is spitting truth all up in this pod!

The Other 51

Joe Iconis, the Tony-nominated writer and composer of Be More Chill, joins Brian this week to talk about creativity in the time of COVID–19, his songwriting process, Keanu Reeves and more.Joe describes what it’s like living in New York City during quarantine, what it’s like to be in a dark theater district and a quiet Times Square, how he’s able to keep writing despite everything going on, and how he’s being inspired by art. But the real burning question: How would The Squip in Be More Chill have been different if Joe had seen Point Break before now?Joe and Brian talk about the collaborative process of writing a musical, how Joe can’t write musical theater in a vacuum, what first drew him to the story of Be More Chill and his obsession with names.Joe also describes his songwriting process, how he never starts with music. And he gives advice to aspiring writers and performers and answers an incredibly nerdy Be More Chill question.Joe IconisJoe on TwitterJoe on InstagramBe More ChillScream Queen!Point BreakMr. Know-It-All by John WatersThe Colossus of New York by Colson WhiteheadSubscribe:Apple PodcastsSpotifyOvercastGoogle PlayRSSSupportSupport Me on Ko-fi
