Jeremy Heere (played by Will Connolly) is just an average teenager. That is, until he finds out about "The Squip" (Eric William Morris)-a tiny supercomputer that promises to bring him everything he desires most: a date with Christine (Stephanie Hsu), an invite to the raddest party of the year and a chance to survive life in his suburban New Jersey high school. But is being the most popular guy in school worth the risk? The company of Be More Chill also features Jake Boyd, Gerard Canonico, Katlyn Carlson, Katie Ladner, Lauren Marcus, George Salazar, and Paul Whitty.
