Music and Lyrics by Joe Iconis

Book by Joe Tracz

Based on the Novel by Ned Vizzini

“More than survive.” That’s all Jeremy Heere wants out of high school. But looking up from the bottom of the social ladder, there’s little hope for the uncool Jeremy. But what if there was an easy way to change all that? Enter the SQUIP, a Japanese nanocomputer in the form of an easy-to-swallow pill. The SQUIP will implant itself in your brain and tell you what to wear, what to say, and how to act to achieve ultimate coolness. Seems like an easy choice, right? But when things with the SQUIP take an unexpected, darker turn, is Jeremy willing to lose his best friend, his crush, his classmates, and the whole world, all in an effort to be more chill? Set to a hot pop-rock score by Joe Iconis, Be More Chill is a hilarious sci-fi tale of high school and one boy’s quest to fit in.

BE MORE CHILL is presented by arrangement with Concord Theatricals.
