    Be More Chill tickets

    Sci-fi comedy musical Be More Chill arrives on Broadway after previous engagements at New Jersey’s Two River Theater and New York’s Irene Diamond Stage. Based on the 2004 novel of the same name by Ned Vizzini, this quirky story about the cost of being cool is currently running at the Lyceum Theatre.

    In Be More Chill, popularity can be achieved with a single pill, known as a SQUIP. This may seem like an irresistible opportunity for the geeks and nerds of the world to finally come out on top, but the darker consequences might be a little hard to swallow. With a unique blend of retro sci-fi and contemporary high school life, Be More Chill is an utterly unique musical that encourages us to ignore the voices in our heads and proudly be ourselves.

    Will Roland stars as Jeremy, having already played the role Off-Broadway. His other credits include Dear Evan Hansen and The Black Suits. He is joined by original cast members George Salazar (Godspell) as Michael and Stephanie Hsu (SpongeBob SquarePants The Musical) as Christine. Jason Tam (If/Then) also appears as The SQUIP.

    Be More Chill features a book by Joe Tracz, whose other credits include a musical adaptation of the popular children’s book, The Lightning Thief. 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.

    With a classic “high school never ends” story mixed with subversive, witty humor, Be More Chill at the Lyceum Theatre is a ride you won’t want to get off.

    Running time: 2 hours 30 mins (including intermission)

    Be More Chill was a rare show for me because I’m more into the classics. I was honestly there to see Will Roland who I loved in DEH. He was great but the show was great as well. The lighting effects were really cool and the music was fresh and catchy. I loved the way they incorporated Keanu Reeves into the show

    Seen the show three times now and still feel it's a great show with a wonderful cast. I'm sorry it will end its run on August 11th and more people won't get the chance to see it. The show unfortunately is geared more towards a younger teenage audience and I feel older theater-goers just don't get it or remember how teens feel and the struggles they have trying to fit in which is the main focus of the show.

    What can I say about this fun, teen-oriented show that found it's way to Broadway that hasn't already been said. This show is for anyone and everyone who wished there was a way to instantly be more popular. The breakout hit song Michael in the Bathroom sung by George Salazar is amazing and anyone can relate to how he feels while he's locked in the bathroom afraid to come out. In the end we find out popular is not all it seems and real friends are the ones who don't care about your status. This was my second time seeing the show (the first was when it played off Broadway) and the extra songs and changes made when if transferred only added to an already great show.

    The show was amazing! The cast did a wonderful job portraying and making each character come alive. There were minor changes to the original but they were fine. They enhanced the play and gave it a fresh new flare. The stage crew and lighting team did a jaw dropping job with the set. They projections were amazing and blew me away. I had never seen projections used in a play to that degree. It was quirky and fun to see.

    This show isn't a masterpiece, it's kind of corny. But I'm in the target demographic, followed the show since its NJ run, and I love the score. It was also my very firsy Broadway show, so I enjoyed it very much :) Definitely worth watching for Stephanie Hsu and George Salazar at least!
