Be More Chill is based on the novel of the same name, authored by acclaimed writer Ned Vizzini. The show is centred around the love triangle between a boy, a girl and the supercomputer inside the boy’s brain.

Featuring original music and lyrics by Joe Iconis and a book by Joe Tracz, Be More Chill has become an international sensation. Millions of people have streamed tracks from the original cast recording since its release in 2015, and from the Original Broadway cast recording released earlier this year.

Tracks from the show have been streamed over 320 million times in total and earlier this year the Broadway cast appeared as special guests on NPR’s Tiny Desk Concert series.

The songbook includes the tracks More Than Survive, Be More Chill and the huge fan favourite Michael In The Bathroom. 

The musical originally premiered in New Jersey in 2015. After a grassroots fanbase discovered the show and began streaming its tracks in record amounts, the creators of Be More Chill decided to revive the show for an off-Broadway production in 2017, before transferring to Broadway’s Lyceum Theatre in 2019.

Critically acclaimed, the Broadway production received a nod at the latest Tony Awards for Best Original Score, and there is currently a film adaptation of the hit in production.

Stephen Brackett, who directed the Broadway and off-Broadway productions of Be More Chill will direct the forthcoming London adaptation.

Casting will be announced soon.

Tickets to see Be More Chill at The Other Palace, London will be available through our presale from 9:00 on Monday 7 October 2019 through
