Tony Award-nominated writer and performer Joe Iconis ( ) isn’t just one of the most supremely talented people in NYC, he’s also one of the busiest and most prolific. Most recently, his jukebox musical Punk Rock Girl made its debut at The Argyle Theatre in Babylon, on his native Long Island, and the original cast album of his Love in Hate Nation, which premiered at NJ’s Two River Theater, was released on Ghostlight Records.

George Salazar and Joe Iconis: Two-Player Game 2.0: Upgraded Edition at Feinstein’s/54 Below

Jonathan Larson Award Winner Joe Iconis ( , Love in Hate Nation) has amassed a “family” of actors that he collaborates with over and over again and seeing the composer/lyricist/playwright on stage with any one of these actors is always a delight. Iconis and George Salazar (Be More Chill, Lightning Thief) are perfectly matched and have such an easy rapport with each other, it’s a joy to watch the pair banter on stage and perform. Iconis accompanies Salazar on the piano and sings along to many of the songs. Salazar is so familiar with Iconis’ work and has performed in many of his shows and workshops, so he perfectly plays off Iconis and immediately gets into character, as if he had written the song himself.

LI's Joe Iconis unleashes 'Punk Rock Girl!' power at Argyle Theatre

Joe Iconis is no fan of jukebox musicals. "They’re ruining my life," he says. "People only want to see shows if they know the songs. I never thought I’d write one." And yet that is exactly what the Garden City-born playwright and composer is doing. "It’s strange," acknowledges Iconis, whose "Be More Chill" famously made it to Broadway in 2019 on a wave of viral social media. Not one to beat around the bush, Iconis gets right to the point. "I really needed the money."
