“Heathers The Musical” - Week 2

Music, lyrics, and book by Laurence O'Keefe and Kevin Murphy

​Directed by Gail Springer.

Based on the 1980’s pop-culture defining black comedy film in which Winona Ryder and Christian Slater took down a totalitarian high school clique, Heathers The Musical, is the darkly delicious story of Veronica Sawyer, a teenage brainy misfit who hustles her way into the most powerful and ruthless clique at Westerberg High, lead by three alpha girls all named Heather. Veronica falls in love with the dangerously sexy new kid J.D., the Heathers spurn Veronica, and the vengeful couple takes life at Westerberg into their own homicidal hands.

Adapted and written by Laurence O’Keefe (Bat Boy, Legally Blonde), and Kevin Murphy (Bat Boy, Legally Blonde, Desperate Housewives), Heathers the Musical was one of New York’s most popular new musicals Off Broadway last year. Prepare yourselves for a laugh-out-loud comedy and unflinching look at the joys and anguish of high school.
