Cast member and Scarlett Cover, Melody Munitz, says of the show: “What makes ‘Here I Am' so special is that it's a new musical by our generation, for our generation, and of our generation. In 2024, social media is largely inescapable. As we're living through this period of tremendous technological growth, it's crucial we take a moment to step back and consider the impacts of these ‘advances' on our lives, individually and as a society. Here I Am is a chance to do just that – while having a great night out at the theater supporting the live arts!”
