Be More Chill is the rocking new sci-fi musical sensation that’s about to invade your brain. An unprecedented international phenomenon, this inventive musical exploded onto the theatre scene and electrified audiences during its runs off and on Broadway. Featuring a Tony Award®-nominated score bursting with addictive earworms, Be More Chill is a mind-bendingly hilarious hit about the competing voices in all of our heads.

Jeremy is just an average teenager. That is, until he finds out about the “Squip” – a tiny supercomputer that promises to give him everything he desires most. It’s your atypical love story – a guy (he wants to fit in), a girl (she wants to be noticed), and the supercomputer inside the guy’s head that tells him what to do (it wants to take over the world). According to The New Yorker, “If you fed Dear Evan Hansen and Mean Girls to the plant from Little Shop of Horrors – you’d get Be More Chill.” In other words, it’s both a relatable tale about how far we’ll go for a little validation… and an otherworldly delight about a lovable geek and his very invasive (im)plant.
