Why See Be More Chill?
The Squips are Coming!
Hot off the back of a fantastic Broadway run the unassuming musical hit Be More Chill is heading to London for the first time this February! The American cult classic of the last half-decade, Joe Iconis (music and lyrics) and Joe Tracz's (book) coming of age tuner follows Jeremy as his quest for cool lands him in a whole heap of trouble.
Garnering a Tony nomination for its pop fulled score, which includes tunes like "More Than Survive" and "Two-Player Game", Be More Chill had been bubbling under the surface of the theatre scene since its premiere production in New Jersey back in 2015. Although Broadway's big wigs had seemingly forgotten about the teen musical, America's musical theatre fans didn't, resulting in over one hundred million album streams of the original cast recording! Now with Broadway finally taking notice of the show's fun and poignant storyline, it's time for London to get a slice of the action...
WHAT IS BE MORE CHILL ABOUT?
Based on the 2004 novel by Ned Vizzini, Be More Chill tells the story of school loser Jeremy Heere as he strives to become one of the popular kids, by ingesting a pill-sized computer that instructs him in the ways of 'cool'.
