Jan. 21, 2019 - New York, NY - The Guggenheim Museum's Works and Process series presents Be More Chill
Written by Joe Iconis and Joe Tracz, based on the acclaimed 2004 novel by Ned Vizzini, and directed by Stephen Brackett, with choreography by Chase Brock, Be More Chill is a musical about Jeremy Heere, an average teenager. That is, until he finds out about “The Squip”—a tiny supercomputer that promises to bring him everything he desires most: a date with Christine, an invite to the raddest party of the year, and a chance to survive life in his suburban New Jersey high school. A truly hilarious, honest, and invigorating look at the lengths one will go to get the girl, set to some of the most vibrant and exciting songs in musical theater today! At Works & Process, the creators will discuss their creative process with moderator Laura Heywood and, in a twist, Dr. Robert Klitzman, Director of the Masters of Bioethics Program at Columbia University, will explore the bioethical implications of the musical. Cast members Stephanie Hsu, Will Roland, and George Salazar will perform highlights prior to the production’s Broadway premiere.
