Heathers The Musical

Heathers The Musical

by: Laurence O'Keefe, Kevin Murphy

by: Laurence O'Keefe, Kevin Murphy

Overview

Heathers The Musical is the darkly delicious story of Veronica Sawyer, a brainy, beautiful teenage misfit who hustles her way into the most powerful and ruthless clique at Westerberg High: the Heathers. But before she can get comfortable atop the high school food chain, Veronica falls in love with the dangerously sexy new kid J.D. When Heather Chandler, the Almighty, kicks her out of the group, Veronica decides to bite the bullet and kiss Heather’s aerobicized ass...but J.D. has another plan for that bullet.

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, Heathers will be New York’s most popular new musical. Are you in, or are you out?

Note on high school edition: Adapted in collaboration with iTheatrics, this dynamic show is now widely available to be performed by High Schools across the world. Note that high school and youth organizations may not produce the standard verison of HEATHERS, and must apply for HEATHERS: HIGH SCHOOL EDITION.
