About the show

After amassing a dedicated fanbase and a Tony Award nomination for Best Original Score, Be More Chill is set to make its UK premiere in 2020. Based on Ned Vizzini’s novel of the same name, this zany new musical was described by The New York Times as “Dear Evan Hansen fed to the Little Shop of Horrors plant.”

Reminiscent of Black Mirror in a high school setting, the show upends a now-classic genre with a spectacular sci-fi twist. Desperate to fit in and get the girl, nerdy teenager Jeremy is lured into an unholy pact with the SQUIP – a supercomputer hellbent on taking over the world. As his social status rockets and the SQUIP becomes ever more controlling, Jeremy learns that the consequences of being cool might be a little hard to swallow.

Full of fun ear worms including "Michael in the Bathroom" and “Voices in My Head”, Be More Chill is a testament to fan power, which drove it from Off-Broadway to a run at New York’s Lyceum Theatre.

Casting for Be More Chill in the West End includes Scott Folan (Mother of Him) as Jeremy, Blake Patrick Anderson as Michael, and former Six stars Renee Lamb and Millie O'Connell.

The musical features a book by Joe Tracz, whose adaptation of the popular children’s book, Percy Jackson: The Lightning Thief transferred to Broadway in September 2019. He is also a writer on Netflix’s A Series of Unfortunate Events.

Joe Iconis (Broadway Bounty Hunter; The Black Suits) provides music and lyrics, and Stephen Brackett directs, having also worked with Tracz on Percy Jackson: The Lightning Thief.

A classic “high school never ends” story mixed with subversive, witty humor, Be More Chill at The Other Palace is guaranteed to be a new cult sensation. Don’t play it cool - catch the show when it begins previews on 12 February 2020.
