“I love that everyone is out and enjoying it. I feel like people are more social in the summer months. The social aspects of it are amazing!” Marc J. Franklin

To beat the heat, Salazar frequently visits Milk Bar, Christina Tosi’s award-winning bakery. “My sister introduced me to Milk Bar. I’ve been a huge fan of it for as long as I can remember. Christina Tosi is one of my culinary heroes. I have such a sweet tooth, and there is a joy and a child-like wonder to Milk Bar!” Marc J. Franklin

George Salazar
“As adults, it’s so hustle-bustle all the time. It’s really nice to find a little haven to go to where your inner child awakens. I like to bring my friends to Milk Bar because it is such a departure from the hectic nature of life. And who doesn’t love a weird ice cream? Like, cereal milk ice cream – who knew it would be so good!” Marc J. Franklin

That’s not to say that Salazar’s summer has been all play—the actor has been hard at work bringing the highly anticipated new York premiere of Be More Chill to the stage. “Here we are three years later, and we’re doing this show in new York City,” Salazar explains. “It is mind blowing that we get to do it again.” Marc J. Franklin

George Salazar
“When I walk into the theatre, everyone is like, ‘There is nowhere else on earth I’d rather be.’ What that brings is a real tangible love and connection. I’m so excited for people to see that and be a part of it.” Marc J. Franklin

George Salazar
“Yesterday was an emotional day at the theatre for me. I realized that we’re surrounded by geniuses in this room. There is so much love and care being put into this production, and I’ve never been a part of anything like it. Yesterday, I sat down next to Joe [Iconis] and was like ‘You changed my life.’ I feel overflowing with joy.” Marc J. Franklin
