Be More Chill returns to London for a 10-week run!

Posted on 14 May 2021

Broadway’s cult phenomenon Be More Chill will return to London after it had its UK premiere early 2020 at the Off-West End Theatre The Other Palace. Its last London run was a hit, having to extend due to demand, but was sadly cut short due to lockdown. The musical is set to return on 30 June to 5 September 2021 for a 10-week strictly limited run at the West End’s Shaftesbury Theatre following ABBA Mania and before & Juliet opens.

What is Be More Chill about?

Be More Chill tells the story of American high school junior’s Jeremy and Michael who just don’t fit in! The Broadway musical follows Jeremy as he signs up for the school play as a means to see his crush, theatre enthusiast Christine. They’re the odd ones out at school and Jeremy’s life is made that bit more difficult by popular boy Rich who makes it a habit to harass and bully him. However, Rich has a secret to his popularity which he shares with Jeremy when he tells him to buy a SQUIP pill (Super Quantum Unit Intel Processor). Jeremy takes the SQUIP and soon all he has to do to be more chill is to follow the instructions of the voice of the supercomputer that’s now inside his head. Will Jeremy be able to get the girl of his dreams? Or will his system overload?
