The latest teen musical sensation to hit Broadway, Be More Chill, found acclaim during its initial 2015 run at the Two River Theater in Red Bank, NJ.

Without a doubt, the single most visible (or perhaps un-visible) change on the live performance change has been the advent on in-ear monitoring. Suddenly performers have the freedom to move about the stage and not be concerned about losing their mix or risking venturing into areas that would cause feedback.

From a perspective derived from seven decades on this earth, I have come to view my survival through 50-plus years in the music business as an extremely providential and fortuitous outcome.
