Columbia College Chicago Theatre Dept. Alum’s Off-Broadway Musical ‘We Are the Tigers’ Cited as One of ’10 Shows Your Teen Is Going to Be So Into’

Preston Max Allen

We Are the Tigers, the new Off-Broadway musical by Columbia College Chicago Theatre Department alumnus Preston Max Allen ’13, is highlighted in an article posted on the New York theatre news site Theatermania. Titled “10 Shows Your Teen Is Going to Be So Into,” the article — posted March 29, 2019 — lists ten musicals currently playing in New York City with a special appeal to teenagers. We Are the Tigers, which runs through April 1 at Theatre 80 St. Marks in New York City’s East Village, is listed along with the Broadway hits Dear Evan Hansen, Be More Chill, Harry Potter and the Cursed Child, Mean Girls, and the long-running smash Wicked as well as several other shows.

“We Are the Tigers”

“Here’s a musical unlike any you’ve seen before,” gushes the Theatermania report. “We Are the Tigers takes a hilariously campy teenage slasher-movie premise and adds a musical score along with some killer choreography performed by a team of cheerleaders. It’s perfect for teens who like their laughs and scares in the same sitting. You’ll have to jump into gear quickly to see this one, though — it closes April 1.”
