About the show

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.

2h 30m | Open run | Lyceum Theatre (Midtown W)

See it if If are a junior high student (other than the constant references to sex and drugs) or really love sets and costumes which were very clever.

Don't see it if You want something that's profound, deep in any way, or with an engaging score. The cast did give it their all but it just wasn’t good.
