Joe Iconis Named 2019 New York Musical Festival Honorary Chair

The 73rd Annual Tony Awards Meet The Nominees Press Day

Big news for Broadway’s Joe Iconis! The Be More Chill lyricist will be an honorary chair at the New York Musical Festival, taking place July 8th through August 4th.

NYMF Producing Artistic Director, West Hyler said, “He is a musical theater songwriter of great integrity and an expert on the intersection of musical theatre & contemporary culture. He is a NYMF alumni who has been called 'the future of musical theater' by theNY Times. With his Tony Award nomination for Be More Chill, and Broadway Bounty Hunter on its way, I can think of no better artist to serve as the honorary chair of the 2019 festival. He will surely be an inspiration to all the wonderful writers premiering new work at NYMF this summer."
