Broadway phenomenon, Be More Chill, to open at The Other Palace

Be More Chill, the mind-bendingly fun, smash hit Broadway musical, is to transfer to London to make its UK premiere at The Other Palace in February.

The show is based on the groundbreaking novel of the same name by Ned Vizzini.

With original music and lyrics by Joe Iconis and a book by Joe Tracz, Be More Chill premiered on Broadway and its 2019 Broadway Cast Recording release garnered over 318 million streams.

The musical tells the atypical love story of a boy, a girl….and the supercomputer inside the boy’s head guiding him every step of the way.

The boy is desperately trying to fit in. The girl’s longing to be noticed. And the supercomputer just wants to take over the world.

The Tony Award-nominated score bursts with addictively catchy songs including More than Survive, Be More Chill and the hugely popular Michael in the Bathroom.

Since 2015, when the show first debuted, the success of Be More Chill in the US has been led by a groundswell of unprecedented online support.

In 2018, the show’s creators thought it was time to bring it back – resulting in an off-Broadway production and this year’s Broadway run at the Lyceum Theatre. 

Casting for the UK production will be announced at a later date.

Be More Chill runs at The Other Palace from February 12 – May 3, 2020.
