Casting for the UK premiere of Be More Chill, the mind-bendingly fun, smash hit Broadway musical was announced today.
The leads roles of Jeremy Heere will be played by Scott Folan (Mother of Him at Park Theatre & Damned By Despair) and Michael Mell by Blake Patrick Anderson (Closer to Heaven & Starlight Express).

Be More Chill tells the atypical love story of a boy, a girl….and the supercomputer inside the boy’s head guiding him every step of the way. The boy is desperately trying to fit in. The girl’s longing to be noticed. And the supercomputer just wants to take over the world.
The Tony Award-nominated score bursts with addictively catchy songs including More than Survive, Be More Chill and the hugely popular Michael in the Bathroom. According to The New Yorker, “If you fed Dear Evan Hansen to the Little Shop of Horrors plant, you’d get Be More Chill.”
Don’t miss out on your chance to see this international sensation based on the groundbreaking novel of the same name by Ned Vizzini, with original music and lyrics by Joe Iconis and a book by Joe Tracz.
