Following its wildly successful Off Broadway run and the closure of its Broadway run, Seth helped finance the production of the move of “Be More Chill” to London’s West End at The Other Palace Theatre in early 2020. The show reopened again with the same company at London’s Shaftesbury Theatre for another 10-week run in the summer of 2021.
Jeremy Heere, a high school junior, is a social outcast. All Jeremy wants out of high school is to “More than survice.” But looking up from the bottom of the social ladder, there’s little hope for the uncool Jeremy. But what if there was an easy way to change all that? Enter the SQUIP, a Japanese nanocomputer in the form of an easy-to-swallow pill. The SQUIP will implant itself in your brain and tell you what to wear, what to say, and how to act to achieve ultimate coolness. Seems like an easy choice, right? But when things with the SQUIP take an unexpected, darker turn, is Jeremy willing to lose his best friend, his crush, his classmates, and the whole world, all in an effort to be more chill? Set to a hot pop-rock score by Joe Iconis, Be More Chill is a hilarious sci-fi tale of high school and one boy’s quest to fit in.
