The viral musical hit comes to Broadway. An edgy, comic look at coming of age in the digital age, through the lens of sci-fi films of the 50s, horror flicks of the 80s, and teen movies of the 90s. (Previous Reviews) More…
Jeremy Heere is your average, nothing-special teenager at Middleborough High in nothing-special New Jersey...until the day he finds out about 'The Squip.' A tiny supercomputer inside a pill. Swallow one and a personalized voice will tell you how to dress, how to speak, how to…become cool. Thus begins a journey that pits Jeremy's desire to be popular against his struggle to remain true to his authentic self.
See it if Goofy in best sense; incredibly talented actors you’ve never heard of; subversive anti-social media message you’ll get but kids won’t
Don't see it if leans heavily on hackneyed HS tropes about how everyone feels like a failure; much is really juvenile

Don't see it if fear hearing loss, tired of teen knock-off musicals, can wait for your local highschool production, want realistic depiction of teen angst
See it if you want to see another musical about surviving high achool. Great cast, interesting set and story but too long.
Don't see it if you don’t want to remember what it was like trying to find your place in high school. Geared toward younger generation and hip old folks
See it if You were a fan of the book (I presume), if you like new, refreshing music that's relevant to today's teens - it speaks to that audience.
Don't see it if You can't handle LOUD moments, if you have zero interest in topics on teenage angst; it may not be for members of another generation
See it if See it for some great individual performances and one truly incredible song. Best for middle and HS kids.
Don't see it if It's surprisingly long for a fun family show. I enjoyed it all, but I bet the best 90 minutes of it would have been an even better show.
See it if you can overlook a simplistic plot/theme a la "Starmites" (Sci-Fi w/no depth). Staging & cast work hard to deliver some humor w/ the angst.
Don't see it if you don't like pop/rock musicals and need multi-levels in character, plot, and theme. This is a one-note pony about teenage angst.
See it if As said before, you are younger or have kids. However, it could be good if you love an original plot with some standout songs
Don't see it if You need something deep, thought-provoking, or don't like quirky references/"random" humor
See it if You are a millennial and a fan of the book.
Don't see it if If you are not a fan of the book or if you are interested in going to a more traditional or original Broadway show.
See it if you've got kids who read the book. To me this is like the SPONGE BOB SQUARE PANTS for Gen Z's sans the cartoon.
Don't see it if you're expecting it to live up to the hype. To me this is a really good kids show. Cute story, decent songs with excellent staging.
See it if You have a tween or teen. Bring them. Do not pay for Squib Zone! Rip Off!!!!
Don't see it if You’re expecting the next great breakthrough 21st century American musical. It’s not. Combination of Sponge Bob & a bad Dear Evan. Act 2>1.
See it if U are opened to new subject matter. Good for the young market. Very imaginative. Voices were good.
Don't see it if U are not imaginative and don't like new storylines.
See it if You’re into obscure/sci fi stories, a teen/recently a teen, want to laugh.
Don't see it if You saw it off broadway and didn’t love it, can’t stand cult like fan groups, or don’t want to see something a little different different.
See it if You are looking for something different, modern and energetic. This had a few great musical performances and was visually intense.
Don't see it if You are expecting something great based on prior success of the show and music. There was potential in this.
See it if you want to see Heathers for the modern beta male with a bit of Little Shop thrown in. All of my high school students love it and I get why
Don't see it if you don't like shows about soical dynamics between nerds and popular kids in high school
See it if you're a fan of the performers. The score was great and they all did a phenomenal job with each song.
Don't see it if you are looking for a clear cut story. It's a typical teen story, but it tries to be too many things, making it confusing.
See it if you are the target demographic, enjoy original musicals or want to be surrounded by a group of the shows' "stans."
Don't see it if you like musicals that operate on a brisk pace or have trouble suspending your disbelieve.
See it if you have a 12-17 yo in tow. Songs sound the same, sound cranked to 11, teen fans scream. Talented cast, but subpar material. Cliches abound.
Don't see it if you want sophistication, originality, good melodies, strg lyrics. BMC isn't painful, but bring earplugs & check your good taste at the door.
