Be More Chill quick summary
The Be More Chill musical plot could definitely be described as “fresh” and “something a little bit different.” Though it’s unclear where Be More Chill is set in, it definitely takes place in suburban America. The Broadway musical tells the abnormal love story of Jeremy Heere, a high school junior tired of being the odd one out who has a crush on Christine Canigula, a girl who loves the theatre and signs up for the school play so that people will finally notice her. While both outcasts in school, Jeremy has a much rougher time as he constantly bullied and harassed by the popular boy in school, Rich Goranski.
After rehearsals are underway for A Midsummer Nightmare (About Zombies) — a horror reimagining of Shakespeare’s A Midsummer Night’s Dream — Jeremy gets jealous when Jake Dillinger flirts with Christine. Jeremy gets cornered in the bathroom by Rich, who tells him to buy a SQUIP pill (super quantum unit Intel processor), which is the secret to Rich’s popularity. Jeremy takes him up on this offer, and soon a supercomputer in Jeremy’s brain tells him what to do and say to be “cool.” Can the voice inside Jeremy’s head help him “stay chill” and get the girl of his dreams, or will the competing voices inside his head cause a system overload? Find out this Summer 2021!
