Be More Chill has extended its run at The Other Palace in London.
The musical, based on the novel of the same name by Ned Vizzini, opened at the off-West End venue in February.
Featuring music and lyrics by Joe Iconis and a book by Joe Tracz, a premiere UK production is now booking through to June 14. It was previously running to May 3.
Reviews for Be More Chill in London have been mostly positive with four stars from both The Guardian and The Times.
A synopsis for the show reads:
What if popularity came in a pill? Would you take it, no questions asked? In Be More Chill, achieving that elusive “perfect life” is now possible thanks to some mysterious new technology-but it comes at a cost that’s not as easy to swallow. What could possibly go wrong?
Blending the contemporary with retro sci-fi, this thrillingly exciting, comically subversive, and deeply felt new musical takes on the competing voices in all of our heads. And ultimately proves, there’s never been a better time in history to be yourself-especially if you’re a loser…geek…or whatever.
The current cast features Scott Folan as Jeremy Heere, Blake Patrick Anderson as Michael Mell with former Six Queens Renee Lamb and Millie O’Connell as Jenna Rolan and Chloe Valentine respectively.
Further cast are Miracle Chance as Christine Canigula, Stewart Clarke as The Squip, Eloise Davies as Brooke Lohst, Christopher Fry as Mr Heere, Mr Reyes + Others, James Hameed as Rich Goranski, Eve Norris as Swing and Miles Paloma as Jake Dillinger.
