The Broadway production of Be More Chill

The Broadway production of Be More Chill

Be More Chill is coming to London next year

Weird and wonderful musical, Be More Chill is coming to London at The Other Palace in February next year.

Based on the novel of the same name by Ned Vizzini, with original music and lyrics by Joe Iconis and a book by Joe Tracz, the production has been on the rise since its very beginning.

Be More Chill first opened in New Jersey at the Two River Theatre. By 2018 they had an Off-Broadway run, which was a runaway success and sold out several extensions. Off the back of this, Be More Chill gained a Broadway run in February this year, which finished only a couple of months ago.

The Broadway production of Be More Chill was nominated for countless awards by critics, panels and audiences alike. In 2019 it won a whopping 10 Theatre Fan’s Choice Awards and 4 Broadway.com Audience Awards.

One of the things that catapulted Be More Chill onto bigger and bigger stages is the runaway streaming success of it’s Original Cast Recording.  With a nostagically 80s-sounding score, the album gained over 100 million downloads in the USA alone, in a short amount of time, and created a huge and passionate audience of fans worldwide.

With a Tony Award-winning score, the musical tells the love story between a girl who just wants to be noticed, a boy who just wants to fit in, and the supercomputer inside his head who just wants to… take over the world.

When gawky Jeremy is offered SQUIP, a pill that promises instant coolness, he can’t help but swallow it down. But SQUIP isn’t a drug but a computer chip implant that begins to take over Jeremy’s actions.

A tale about teenage awkwardness, AI and free will – what a winning combination. The story is still on the up – from humble beginnings to Broadway and the West End in only a few years, and a film adaptation is currently in development too.

Tickets are on sale now, and Be More Chill’s first performance outside of America is bound to sell fast, so don’t miss out!

We now sell our famous TKTS Booth discounts online here at Official London Theatre.

We are now cancelling all performances up until and including 31 May 2020 to help us process existing bookings whilst we wait for further clarity from the government in terms of when we will be able to reopen.

We are so sorry that in these testing and difficult times you are not able to enjoy the show you have booked for and hope the following helps clarify next steps in respect of your tickets .

There is nothing that you need to do if your performance has been cancelled, but we do ask for your patience.

If you have booked directly with the theatre or show website for an affected performance, please be assured that they will contact you directly to arrange an exchange for a later date, a credit note/voucher or a refund. If you have booked via a ticket agent they will also be in contact with you directly.

We are processing in strict date order of performance, so you are likely to be contacted after the date you were due to go to the theatre. However, we want to reassure you that you will be contacted, and your order will be processed, but please do bear with us.

We’d like to thank everyone who has been patient and kind in dealing with their ticket providers so far and we are sorry that we cannot process your order as quickly as we would like.

Please do not contact your credit card company as that will slow the process down and put an additional burden on our box office and ticket agent teams.

In order for us to serve our audiences the best we can, please do not get in touch with your point of sale if you have booked for performances after 31 May. Please be reassured that if we have to cancel future performances you will be directly contacted by your theatre or ticket provider. Our producers continue to plan for all eventualities dependent on the individual needs of their shows and we will provide further updates on specific shows as and when they become available.

We look forward to welcoming you back into our theatres as soon as we are allowed to resume performances. In the meantime stay safe and healthy.

While theatres are currently closed, various venues and productions are making announcements for their individual shows, including cancellations and rescheduled performances. Please check with the individual shows for details.
