'We know what people are saying. We know that people hear 'Emojiland the Musical' and go... huh? We're kind of counting on that,' explains star Leslie Margherita. 'We want people to come and have their minds changed. I loved the message of this musical about being inclusive, and that people aren't what they are at their face value.'
