“You Gotta Be Like ME!” (according to a robot)
Length: 2:53 

What if you lived in a world in which all high school students have to pass an IQ test or get drummed out of society? This 15-minute musical explores a comic-but-frightening look at a potential future gone wrong.

In this excerpt from “IQ the Musical,” an egotistical robot encourages a young girl to be exactly like the perfect robot.
