Poster for Be More Chill
October 4–15
Playhouse Theatre
Music and Lyrics by Joe Iconis  • Book by Joe Tracz
Based on the novel by Ned Vizzini • Directed by John Simpkins
Not quite one of the cool kids and not nerdy enough to fall in at the other end of his high school’s cliquey social spectrum, Jeremy Heere is almost invisible. That is, until he discovers a tiny supercomputer that gives him access to everything he wants: girl, parties, popularity. Truly the teenage dream—or so he thinks.  The show features music by Joe Iconis, who supplied music for NBC’s SMASH. Mr. Iconis will also visit the Penn State campus to meet with our B.F.A. actors and develop a new musical for them.
