Casting for the UK premiere of the smash-hit Broadway musical, Be More Chill, has today been announced.

The lead roles of Jeremy Heere will be played by Scott Folan (Mother Of Him at Park Theatre and Damned by Despair at the National Theatre) and Michael Mell by Blake Patrick Anderson (Straight Dave in Pet Shop Boy’s Closer To Heaven and Starlight Express).

Renee Lamb and Millie O’Connell, both of whom starred in one of Britain’s most popular new musicals, Six The Musical, will be joining them alongside Miracle Chance as Christine Canigula, Stewart Clarke as The Squip, Eloise Davies as Brooke Lohst, James Hameed as Rich Goranski, Miles Paloma as Jake Dillinger, Christopher Fry as Mr Heere and Mr Reyes, and Eve Norris (swing) with further company members to be announced.

The mind-bending, feel-good musical will play at The Other Palace from Wednesday 12 February 2020 and is based on the groundbreaking novel of the same name by Ned Vizzini.

With a Tony Award-winning score, the weird and wonderful 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.

It was announced today by Lambert Jackson Productions that the concert performances of the Tony award-winning musical The Secret Garden will take place at The London Palladium on Saturday 4 April and will star Lucie Jones (Waitress), Ramin Karimloo (Les Misérables, Broadway ) and Jac Yarrow (Joseph And The Amazing Technicolour Dreamcoat)

Directed by Nick Winston, the Victorian classic novel by Frances Hodgson Burnett will be brought to life in this enchanting musical by Pulitzer Prize-winner Marsha Norman and Lucy Simon.

Jamie Lambert and Eliza Jackson today said, “The Secret Garden is one of the most wonderful pieces of storytelling, and we feel so lucky to be able to present this stunning musical adaptation in a concert setting. With book by the exceptional Marsha Norman, stunning music by the beautiful Lucy Simon (who we worked with on our recent concert production of Doctor Zhivago) together with this all-star cast, this is going to be a truly extraordinary theatre experience.”

Lucie Jones is currently starring as Jenna in Waitress at The Adelphi Theatre

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 via a ticket agent they will also be in contact with you directly.
