BE MORE CHILL Star Stephanie Hsu Stars In NPR Kids' Podcast CIRCLE ROUND

Be More Chill's Stephanie Hsu (last seen in SpongeBob SquarePants: The Broadway Musical) is the latest Broadway star to join the cast of the acclaimed children's storytelling podcast, Circle Round.

Hsu plays a kind, humble woman whose generosity is rewarded in surprising ways in "The Star Fruit Tree": a magical Vietnamese tale adapted by Circle Round's host, Rebecca Sheir. Circle Round is a production of WBUR, Boston's NPR station.

Circle Round finds classic folktales from around the world, and transforms them into radio plays for modern audiences aged 3-103. With original music and sound design by Sheir's husband, Eric Shimelonis, every episode features notable performers from the stage and screen, including: Billy Porter, Raul Esparza, Keith David, Jason Alexander, Kathryn Hahn, Taran Killam, Jon Cryer, Richard Kind, Sela Ward, James Naughton, Iain Armitage, Miriam Shor, Kathleen Chalfant, Ed Asner, Max Casella, Derek Klena, Wiliam Jackson Harper, Danny Burstein and Rebecca Luker. Euan Morton (Hamilton) is set to headline another Circle Round story in May.
