The Broadway smash-hit musical transfers to London
It’s impossible to be chill about BE MORE CHILL” (Broadway World), the mind-bending hit musical now playing at London’s Shaftesbury Theatre.

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 booking until 5 September at the Shaftesbury Theatre, London.
