If you’re a fan of new musicals like Dear Evan Hansen then you should definitely check this out at The Other Palace, Andrew Lloyd Webber’s testing ground for exciting new shows. This one has come over from New York where it was a hit Off-Broadway. Although it’s had a mixed reception from UK critics the first reviews in from Stagedoor users are all glowing.
An unprecedented international phenomenon, this original and hilarious show exploded onto the musical theatre scene and electrified audiences during its runs off- and on Broadway. Featuring a Tony Award®-nominated score bursting with addictive earworms, BE MORE CHILL is a mind-bendingly fun hit about the competing voices in all of our heads. It’s just your atypical love story – a guy (he wants to fit in), a girl (she wants to be noticed), and the supercomputer inside the guy’s head that tells him what to do (it wants to take over the world!). According to The New Yorker, “If you fed Dear Evan Hansen to the Little Shop of Horrors plant, you’d get BE MORE CHILL.” In other words, it’s both a relatable tale about how far we’ll go for a little validation… and an otherworldly delight about a loveable geek and his very invasive (im)plant. What’s not to love? Age recommendation: 12+ The musical has mature themes and mature language. We ask that patrons consider the individual needs of younger theatergoers before bringing them to the show.
