'An Evening with Joe Iconis and Family' a benefit performance for Two River Theater

Two River Theater, under the leadership of Artistic Director John Dias and Managing Director Michael Hurst, announces An Evening with Joe Iconis and Family, a benefit performance directed by John Simpkins in Two River’s Rechnitz Theater on Saturday, May 19, 2018 at 7pm.

Tickets for the concert can be purchased from 732.345.1400 or and range from $60 to $250. Patrons ages 21 and older who purchase $90 tickets will be invited to attend a special cocktail reception beginning at 6pm, prior to the musical program. Patrons who purchase $250 tickets will be invited to attend both the cocktail reception and a special family dinner following the performance. All proceeds will benefit Two River’s programs for the development of new musical theater.

Joe Iconis is an acclaimed musical theater writer whose musical Be More Chill (written with Joe Tracz) premiered at Two River in 2015; the original cast recording has been streamed more than 90 million times. Iconis and Tracz are currently writing a new musical as a Two River Theater commission. His other musicals include Love in Hate Nation, Broadway Bounty Hunter, and Bloodsong of Love, and his song “Broadway, Here I Come” was cited by the New York Times as a new entry in the Great American Songbook. He was named “one to watch” in Billboard’s Top 10 picks of the next generation of Broadway singers and songwriters.

A combination of rock ‘n’ roll jamboree and musical cabaret, the musical performance will include classic tunes, new numbers, and works-in-progress written by Joe Iconis, and will feature performances by some of his closest collaborators including Liz Lark Brown, Alexandra Ferrara, Danielle Gimbal, Lauren Marcus, Eric William Morris, George Salazar, Jared Weiss and Jason SweetTooth Williams.

This special event is sponsored by a number of generous organizations and individuals. For information about sponsorship opportunities, contact Katie Benson at 732.345.1400 ext. 1817 or
