When the sci-fi teen musical Be More Chill opened in New Jersey a few years ago, it got a ho-hum critical response. But then something surprising happened.

The cast recording and some YouTube videos went viral. Then came fan art, fan fiction and fan covers of the songs on social media.

When the show opened off-Broadway last month, it sold out entirely. In February, Be More Chill will move to Broadway.

People from across the country gathered this weekend in a small Carolina manufacturing town to celebrate Bigfoot.

The first annual Bigfoot Festival in Marion, N.C. brought together the entire range of participants from sasquatch skeptics and complete nonbelievers to Bigfoot explorers quick to share tales of sightings and howls.

McDowell County Chamber of Commerce director Steve Bush is ambivalent when it comes to Bigfoot.

"I'm going to say that until I see him — I want to believe, but until I physically see him — I'm going to say no at this point," says Bush.
