Based on the cult classic 1989 film, this darkly delicious satire is a rowdy, guilty-pleasure musical which takes an unflinching look at the joy and anguish of high school. Westerberg High is ruled by a shoulder-padded, scrunchie-wearing posse: Heather, Heather, and Heather, the hottest and cruellest girls in all of Ohio. Misfit Veronica Sawyer, who hustles her way into this teenage power trifecta, discovers that life in the Teflon crowd isn’t all that it seems. All bets are off when a darkly delicious stranger, JD, plans to put the Heathers in their place — six feet under. Heathers explores, with biting satire, empowerment and vulnerability in the relationships between friends, lovers, parents, and school communities, creating a show of high emotion.
Brought to you by the award-winning creative team of Kevin Murphy (“Reefer Madness”, “Desperate Housewives”), Laurence O’Keefe (“Bat Boy”, “Legally Blonde”) and Andy Fickman (“Reefer Madness”, “She’s the Man”). “Heathers The Musical” is a hilarious, heartfelt and homicidal new show based on the greatest teen comedy of all time. With its moving love story, laugh-out-loud comedy and unflinching look at the joys and anguish of high school. Are you in, or are you out?
