"BE MORE CHILL"
ORIGINAL BROADWAY CAST RECORDING

BY JOE ICONIS AND JOE TRACZ
BASED ON THE NOVEL BY NED VIZZINI

DIGITAL ALBUM OUT FRIDAY, MAY 3

GHOSTLIGHT RECORDS has announced that Be More Chill: Original Broadway Cast Recording will be released for digital download and streaming on Friday, May 3. This new album completes a remarkable full-circle journey for Be More Chill, as the original recording from Ghostlight (which has now been streamed over 300 million times to date) helped propel the show from Two River Theater to a viral Broadway hit. CD and vinyl releases are planned for later this year.

Be More Chill, currently playing at the Lyceum Theatre (149 West 45th Street, NYC), features music and lyrics by Joe Iconis and a book by Joe Tracz, based on the cult sensation novel by Ned Vizzini. Stephen Brackett directs and Chase Brock choreographs.

"It's no secret that many of Be More Chill's supporters first discovered the show thanks to its Two River original cast album. The thought of delivering a brand-new Broadway cast album to those same fans, who continue to support and love the musical and expand its reach to brand-new audiences every night at the Lyceum Theatre is a thrill," said lead producer Jerry Goehring.

According to Joe Iconis, "the score of Be More Chill has mutated, deepened, gotten tons more heartfelt and a lot more explosive since our first production at Two River. I am so thrilled that our new Broadway cast recording will capture all of that growth and more. Fans of the show can expect the definitive version of the score, complete with tons of never-before-recorded musical goodies and expanded versions of songs they know and love. First time listeners can expect the most contemporary-sounding traditional musical comedy cast recording imaginable."

What if popularity came in a pill? Would you take it, no questions asked? In Be More Chill, achieving that elusive "perfect life" is now possible thanks to some mysterious new technology-but it comes at a cost that's not as easy to swallow. What could possibly go wrong? Blending the contemporary with retro sci-fi, this thrillingly exciting, comically subversive, and deeply felt new musical takes on the competing voices in all of our heads. And ultimately proves, there's never been a better time in history to be yourself-especially if you're a loser...geek...or whatever.

When the musical opened on Broadway, The Wall Street Journal called it "one of the strongest new musicals of the past decade. Not since Hamilton has a musical opened on Broadway that is so closely in tune with contemporary pop-music style." Rolling Stone hailed it as "a wow of a musical shaking things up on Broadway. Talk about universal! This joyful, roof-raising phenom is uplifted by the irresistible score of the mega-skilled Joe Iconis." New York Magazine writes "It soars... witty, high octane tunes, bang-up performances and shrewd comedy. It has a welcome edge to it that's refreshing!" AM New York calls Be More Chill "an exciting musical with an addictively catchy score and superb cast. It deserves a place in Broadway history." NBC says Be More Chill is "the toast of Broadway. A new musical that speaks to a new generation."
