The spring marks new beginnings and sadly, some endings. Be More Chill will be making its first on-Broadway appearance in the spring with previews beginning in February with the official opening night taking place on March 10th. Sadly, Kinky Boots will be taking its final bows in those glorious red boots on April 7th.
Be More Chill, a musical with music and lyrics by Joe Iconis and a book by Joe Tracz will be making its first appearance on a Broadway stage in February, officially opening in March. Starting at the Two Rivers Theater in New Jersey, this exciting and “relatable” musical was perceived very well with sold-out performances both in New Jersey and off-Broadway. Before the announcement of the Broadway production, Be More Chill was off-Broadway at the Irene Diamond Stage at the Pershing Square Signature Center from July to September 2018.

After the death of his father, Charlie inherited a shoe factory which he was determined to distance himself from originally. In order to save the business, he formed an unlikely partnership with a cabaret performer and drag queen, Lola. Together, the two created a line of high-heeled boots which was the complete opposite of the boring, expensive men’s shoes initially produced. Will Charlie and Lola be able to save the business?
