Be More Chill has announced the summertime performers in its new Post Show Hang series on Wednesday evenings.

Composer Joe Iconis will accompany the performers, a list that includes cast of Be More Chill performing a medley of cut songs from the show on June 5, Alice Ripley on June 12, Lolo on June 19, Alysha Umphress on June 26, Telly Leung on July 3, Nick Blaemire, Lance Rubin, and Will Swenson on July 10, Krysta Rodriguez on July 17, Lilli Cooper on July 24, and Andrew Keenan-Bolger on July 31.

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."

Featuring a Tony-nominated score by Joe Iconis and a book by Joe Tracz, Be More Chill comes to Broadway from a 2018 off-Broadway run at the Pershing Square Signature Center, as well as a 2015 world premiere at Two River Theater, in Red Bank, New Jersey.

Directed by Stephen Brackett, 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.
