What if popularity came in a pill? Would you take it? In BE MORE CHILL, achieving the "perfect life" is possible thanks to mysterious new technology-but it comes at a cost that's not as easy to swallow. Thrillingly exciting and comically subversive, this new musical takes on the competing voices in our heads. And ultimately proves, there's never been a better time in history to be yourself.

Meet and greet with the extraordinarily talented Jane Kaczmarek after you and a friend see Williamstown Theatre Festival's World Premiere of Sharyn Rothstein's Tell Me I'm Not Crazy this summer!
Forced into retirement and unsettled by the changing world around him, Sol Koening (Mark Blum) buys himself a gun-and his family is up in arms. His wife Diana (Golden Globe and Emmy Award nominee Jane Kaczmarek) thought they'd spend more time together and with the grandkids, but Sol's new hobby puts a bullet in that plan. Meanwhile, their son Nate (Mark Feuerstein) is trying to be a good stay-at-home dad while his jet-setting wife Alisa (Nadine Malouf) climbs the corporate ladder, and school is calling with concerns about their kid. Directed by Tony Award nominee Moritz von Stuelpnagel, Sharyn Rothstein's world premiere comedy asks how one small firearm redefines a family and how two generations confront what it means to succeed and to sacrifice in America today.
Tickets subject to availability. Can be redeemed after June 1. Production runs from July 24-August 3, 2019. Voucher expires August 3, 2019.
