Our Review 3 / 5

Be More Chill, the mind-bendingly, delightfully fun, hit musical comes to the Shaftesbury after its runaway success on Broadway, Off Broadway and in London at the Other Palace, until the show was forced to close in March last year due to the pandemic.  It is produced by Bill Kenwright with Jerry Goehring, Lisa Dozier and Paul Taylor-Mills.  Be More Chill, based on the ground-breaking novel of the same name by Ned Vizzini, features a Tony Award-nominated original score by Joe Iconis. It's bursting with addictively catchy songs such as More than Survive, Be More Chill and the showstopping Michael in the Bathroom. Be More Chill is an international sensation. 

The original London cast will reprise their roles: Blake Patrick Anderson (Michael Mell), Miracle Chance (Christine Canigula), Stewart Clarke (The Squip), Eloise Davies (Brooke Lohst), Scott Folan (Jeremy Heere), Christopher Fry (Mr Heere, Mr Reyes and others), James Hameed (Rich Goranski), Gabriel Hinchliffe (Ensemble), Renée Lamb (Jenna Rolan), Eve Norris (Ensemble), Millie O’Connell (Chloe Valentine), Miles Paloma (Jake Dillinger).

Be More Chill 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; desperate to be loved. The girl; longing to be noticed. And the supercomputer…just wants to take over the world.

Our Review of Be More Chill


After the homegrown Everybody's Talking About Jamie and Broadway import Dear Evan Hansen, Be More Chill is another new musical about the growing pains and everyday terrors of high school students who are misfits and trying to either blend in or stand out from the crowd. (Broadway has also offered Mean Girls and The Prom, also set in high schools, the first of which has become an enduring hit but the second closed last summer). Read more
