Be More Chill Announces Rush Ticket Policy Ahead of Broadway Run
The hit Joe Iconis-Joe Tracz musical begins performances this week at the Lyceum Theatre.
Be More Chill has announced a rush ticket policy ahead of its Broadway run, which will begin on Wednesday, February 13, with opening night set for Sunday, March 10.
A limited number of $40 tickets will be available for purchase in person on a first-come, first-served basis at the Lyceum Theatre box office for that day's performance only, with a limit of two tickets per person and subject to availability. Seats may be in partial-view locations. Cash and credit cards are accepted.
Inspired by the novel by Ned Vizzini, Be More Chill is described as follows: "Jeremy Heere is your average, nothing-special teenager at Middleborough High in nothing-special New Jersey...until the day he finds out about 'The Squip.' Thus begins a journey that pits Jeremy's desire to be popular against his struggle to remain true to his authentic self."
The Broadway cast features Will Roland as Jeremy, George Salazar as Michael, Gerard Canonico as Rich, Katlyn Carlson as Chloe, Stephanie Hsu as Christine, Tiffany Mann as Jenna, Lauren Marcus as Brooke, Britton Smith as Jake, Jason Tam as the Squip, and Jason SweetTooth Williams as Jeremy's Dad and Mr. Reyes. Off-Broadway understudies Cameron Bond, Troy Iwata, and Talia Suskauer will be joined by Anthony Chatmon II, Morgan Siobhan Green, and Joel Waggoner for the Broadway run.
Be More Chill is directed by Stephen Brackett with choreography by Chase Brock. The creative team includes Beowulf Boritt (scenic design), Bobby Frederick Tilley II (costume design), Tyler Micoleau (lighting), Ryan Rumery (sound design), Emily Marshall (musical direction), and Charlie Rosen (orchestrations). The musical premiered in 2015 at Two River Theater, in Red Bank, New Jersey, and ran in the summer of 2018 at the Pershing Square Signature Center.
