About this show

It's called a Squip. A tiny supercomputer inside a pill. Swallow one and a personalized voice will tell you how to dress, how to speak, how to…become cool.

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. Be More Chill is an honest, edgy, super-hilarious look at coming of age in the digital age, set to some of the most exciting songs in contemporary musical theater. This original musical comedy looks at modern issues like depression, bullying, and anxiety through the lens of sci-fi films of the 1950s, horror flicks of the '80s, and teen movies of the '90s.
