by Pamela Roberts - Jul 15, 2019

Jeremy Heere is a socially-awkward, hopelessly uncool student languishing at the bottom rung of the high school's social ladder. "I don't want to be special, I just want to survive," he sings in the opening number of Be More Chill, a show that makes its Washington-area premiere in a wonderfully effervescent and wholehearted Monumental Theatre Company production.

The show is the wonderful and slightly off-color extravaganza, Trey Parker's Cannibal the Musical! (more...)
