BREAKDOWN

Be More Chill is the coolest new musical about being a loser.
What if popularity came in a pill? Would you take it, no questions asked? In Be More Chill, achieving the “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.
It’s already “one of the most popular new musicals in America,” raves The New York Times. And The Wall Street Journal cheers, “It’s going to hit big—and deservedly so!” Now, direct from its sold-out New York premiere, Be More Chill is coming to Broadway. Discover this hilariously honest show for yourself, featuring an electric, ear-worm filled score by “one of Broadway’s next great songwriters” (Billboard).
SEEKING:
[OFFSTAGE MALE COVER] Male, 20’s – 30’s. ANY ETHNICITY. Must have great comedic timing and strong rock/pop voice. Offstage understudy for 4 roles: MICHAEL, RICH, JAKE, SQUIP. Potential dance captain.
[OFFSTAGE MALE COVER] Male, 30’s – 40’s. ANY ETHNICITY. Must have great comedic timing and strong rock/pop voice. Offstage understudy for MR. HEERE & OTHERS.
[OFFSTAGE FEMALE COVER] Female, 18+ to play a teenager. ANY ETHNICITY. Must have great comedic timing and strong rock/pop voice. Offstage understudy for 4 roles: CHRISTINE, CHLOE, BROOKE, JENNA. Potential dance captain.
All roles listed below have been offered:
[JEREMY HEERE]: Male, 18+ to play a teenager. ANY ETHNICITY. Sweet, introspective, awkward and very much uncool, he just hopes to keep his head down enough to survive high school and maybe get the girl of his dreams to notice him. When he’s given the opportunity to have a supercomputer implanted in his brain that tells him how to become popular, he has to balance following its rules with following his own heart. ROLE HAS BEEN OFFERED.
[THE SQUIP]: Male, 20’s – 40’s. ANY ETHNICITY. The physical manifestation of a Japanese supercomputer which implants in Jeremy’s brain and teaches him how to be cool. The Squip appears as the coolest guy around – confident, self-assured and literally all-knowing, with a hint of Keanu Reeves (the coolest guy Jeremy can think of) and an occasional tendency to be snide. However, since he is a supercomputer with his own agenda, he occasionally reveals a more mechanical, much darker side. Must have a great rock/pop voice. ROLE HAS BEEN OFFERED.
[MICHAEL MELL]: Male, 18+ to play a teenager. ANY ETHNICITY. Funny, laid-back, and very warm. Although he’s uncool too, he’s comfortable in his own skin and happy to kick back, play video games with his best (and only) friend Jeremy, listen to Bob Marley, and wait for high school to be over. Jeremy’s transformation and subsequent betrayal are devastating, and for the first time ever, the longtime outsider finds himself in a position to save the day. ROLE HAS BEEN OFFERED.
[CHRISTINE]: Female, 18+ to play a teenager. ANY ETHNICITY. Sweet, sensitive, smart and a little nerdy, she’s a theater kid and cares deeply about it. The kind of girl who knows she’ll thrive in college, she doesn’t engage with the social hierarchy of high school but can’t resist being tempted when the coolest guy in school starts pursuing her. ROLE HAS BEEN OFFERED.
[CHLOE]: Female, 18+ to play a teenager. ANY ETHNICITY. The most popular girl in school. Confident, crass, sexy, manipulative, and downright mean at times, she’s the undisputed queen of the social scene, and rules over her minions with unquestioned power. ROLE HAS BEEN OFFERED.
[BROOKE]: Female, 18+ to play a teenager. ANY ETHNICITY. The second most popular girl in school. Sweet and a little insecure, she’s Chloe’s sidekick and always happy to defer to her, although she’s not nearly as driven or dominating. ROLE HAS BEEN OFFERED.
[RICH]: Male, 18+ to play a teenager. ANY ETHNICITY. The terror of the uncool kids, and will go out of his way to make their lives difficult. Despite his meanness and almost certain criminal future, he has a secret that reveals a surprisingly sensitive side and a chance at possible redemption. Must have the ability to be truly threatening. ROLE HAS BEEN OFFERED.

[JAKE DILLINGER]: Male, 18+ to play a teenager. ANY ETHNICITY. The ultimate high school cool guy. Handsome, popular, a star athlete from a rich family, he has everything going for him and he knows it. Alpha status is effortless to him and he might contain hidden depths, but it’s hard to see them when he gets whatever he wants all the time. Strong rock/pop voice. ROLE HAS BEEN OFFERED.
[JENNA ROLAN]: Female, 18+ to play a teenager. ANY ETHNICITY. Clearly not one of the cool kids (although she desperately wants to be), she’s the school gossip who always has the dirt and is more than happy to tell anyone and everyone about it. Must be great with comedy. Strong voice with a pop/indie-rock sensibility. ROLE HAS BEEN OFFERED.
[MR. HEERE & OTHERS]: Male, 30’s – 40’s. ANY ETHNICITY. Jeremy’s Dad. Sweet, cheerful, and a little pathetic, his wife’s departure the year before has left him in denial and struggling to cope. Terrified of everything including stepping up as a father and wearing pants, he pretends everything is just fine. ROLE HAS BEEN OFFERED.

[OFFSTAGE MALE COVER] Offstage understudy for 3 roles: JEREMY, MICHAEL, RICH. ROLE HAS BEEN OFFERED.
[OFFSTAGE MALE COVER] Offstage understudy for 3 roles: THE SQUIP, MR. HEERE & OTHERS, JAKE. ROLE HAS BEEN OFFERED.
[OFFSTAGE FEMALE COVER] Offstage understudy for 3 roles: CHLOE, JENNA, BROOKE. ROLE HAS BEEN OFFERED.
