Written and directed by Speak Theater Arts' Liesel Reinhart, it gets better is infused with the dynamic musical energy of the Gay Men's Chorus of Los Angeles. The musical provides a performing arts response to the difficult issue of bullying, one of the most challenging issues among today's young adults and adolescents. The performance includes original music sung by the chorus, as well as well-known pop songs such as Kelly Clarkson's "Stronger," Christina Aguilera's "Beautiful," Cher's "If I Could Turn Back Time" and "You Have More Friends Than You Know," a song written by Tony Award-winner Jeff Marx and Grammy-winner Mervyn Warren that was featured on an episode of Glee in April 2013.
A collaboration by Los Angeles' Speak Theater Arts, the Gay Men's Chorus of Los Angeles and the It Gets Better Project, the Houston performance is in partnership with Legacy Community Health Services, The Montrose Center and Bayou City Performing Arts. In addition, a weeklong series of public and private outreach events will be taking place throughout the community leading up to the performance.
