"Be More Chill" Face Slap From Tony Awards


"What little drama there was at Sunday’s low-rated Tony Awards telecast centered on “Be More Chill,” Joe Iconis’ struggling musical.

When James Corden, Josh Groban and Sara Bareilles sang “James in the Bathroom,” nearly everyone at Radio City Music Hall laughed. They knew it was a parody of “Michael in the Bathroom” from “Be More Chill” because they’d seen the show. But many TV viewers had no clue what was going on because they’ve never heard of the song or the show.

No one on the telecast acknowledged that “Be More Chill” inspired the parody that the musical’s team didn’t know was coming. “We were stunned,” a source involved in the show says."
