The viral hit musical Be More Chill, with a book by Joe Tracz and music and lyrics by Joe Iconis, plays July 11 through 29, 2019, at Monumental Theatre Company. Be More Chill follows nerdy loner Jeremy, played by Ben Ribler, who ingests a supercomputer called a "SQUIP" in order to become cool and popular. Jeremy's best friend Michael is played by Christian Montgomery. His love interest, Christine, is played by Monumental newcomer Jyline Carranza. The "SQUIP" will be played by Caroline Dubberly. Check out the video below!
Be More Chill is directed by Izzy Smelkinson with Music Direction by Marika Countouris. "We're really trying to dig deep and get to the heart of the musical," said Smelkinson, "While at first glance it seems like Jeremy is the only one searching for how to fit in, in truth, every character is struggling to find out how to accept themselves as they really are, not who they wish to be."
