BE MORE CHILL is the new musical sensation now playing at The Other Palace Theatre.
According to The New Yorker, “If you fed “DEAR EVAN HANSEN” and “Mean Girls” to the “Little Shop of Horrors” plant, you’d get BE MORE CHILL.” In other words, it’s both a relatable tale about how far we’ll go for a little validation… and an otherworldly delight about a loveable geek and his very invasive (im)plant. What’s not to love?
Based on the groundbreaking novel by Ned Vizzini, this original and hilarious musical exploded onto the US theatre scene and electrified audiences during its runs off- and on Broadway.
BE MORE CHILL is a mind-bendingly funny, pop-rock sci-fi musical with original music and lyrics by Joe Iconis and a book by Joe Tracz. Songs from the Tony-nominated score have accumulatively garnered over 318 million streams, with the breakout track Michael In The Bathroom amassing over 31 million streams and 8 million YouTube views alone.
BE MORE CHILL is booking until 14 June 2020 at The Other Palace Theatre, London.
What’s the Story?
It’s just your atypical love story – a guy (he wants to fit in), a girl (she wants to be noticed), and the supercomputer inside the guy’s head that tells him what to do (it wants to take over the world!).
