The It Gets Better musical theatre project, a co-production of Speak Theater Arts, the It Gets Better Project and the Gay Men’s Chorus of Los Angeles, will premiere October 19 at the University of Iowa. Written and directed by Liesel Reinhart with musical direction by Morton Kier, It Gets Better, according to the GMCLA website, is upbeat, exciting, and funny with a narrative that includes moments of pain and pathos and will explore what ‘better’ means for LGBT youth. With its unqualified support of all young people, It Gets Better creates and unites allies in solidarity against the pervasive (and growing) climate of bullying and teen violence. Following the performances at the Iowa Memorial Union, It Gets Better will move to the Center for the Performing Arts at Penn State in February 2013. Stops are also planned in Lawrence, KS, and Seattle, WA. The production features a six-member cast from the Gay Men’s Chorus, including Jason Currie, Tyler Houston, Tod Macofsky, Mario Mosley, Sacha Sacket and Drew Tablak. The theatre company will also spend a week in each community participating in a series of public events and outreach activities. []
