Stephen Brackett directs and Chase Brock choreographs this limited 9-week, off-Broadway engagement July 26 – September 23 at The Irene Diamond Stage at The Pershing Square Signature Center (480 West 42nd Street, NYC). Based on the cult sensation novel by Ned Vizzini, Be More Chill is the story of Jeremy Heere, your average, nothing-special teenager at Middleborough High in nothing- special New Jersey. That is, until the day he finds out about “The Squip.” Thus begins a journey that pits Jeremy’s desire to be popular against his struggle to remain true to his authentic self. Be MoreChill is an honest, edgy, super-hilarious look at coming of age in the digital age, set to some of the most exciting songs in contemporary musical theater. This original musical comedy looks at modern issues like depression, bullying, and anxiety through the lens of sci-fi films of the 50s, horror flicks of the 80s, and teen movies of the 90s. Little Shop of Horrors meets The Breakfast Club in this celebration of outcasts, teenaged or otherwise.

 

Be More Chill is presented by Gerald Goehring, Michael F. Mitri, Jennifer Ashley Tepper, Marc David Levine, Marlene and Gary Cohen, 42.club, The Baruch Frankel Viertel Group, Jenny Niederhoffer, Fred and Randi Sternfeld, Robert and Joan Rechnitz, Ashlee Latimer and Jenna Ushkowitz, Ben Holtzman and Sammy Lopez, Jenn Maley and Cori Stolbun, Chris Blasting, YesBroadway Productions, and Koenigsberg/Federman/Adler in association with Two River Theater, Red Bank, NJ, whichoriginally commissioned and produced the musical. Be More Chill features scenic design by Tony Award-winner Beowulf Boritt (Come From Away), costume design by Bobby Frederick Tilley II (Lizzie BordenTop Girls); lighting design by Tyler Micoleau (IowaThe World of Extreme Happiness); sound design by Ryan Rumery (Fool For Love); musical direction by Emily Marshall; orchestrations by Charlie Rosen (Prince of Broadway, Honeymoon in Vegas).
