Now in previews on Broadway following a hit Off-Broadway run last year, Be More Chill will open at the Lyceum Theatre March 10. As previously reported, the entire Off-Broadway cast made the move to Broadway when the musical transferred earlier this month.
Featuring a score by Joe Iconis and a book by Joe Tracz, Be More Chill is based on Ned Vizzini’s novel about an average teenager who takes a pill purported to make people more—you guessed it—chill. The musical began previews on Broadway February 13.
