‘Heathers: The Musical’ play dates, times, cast and ticket information


Play:  Heathers: the Musical

Book, Music & Lyrics:  Based on the 1989 cult classic film, Heathers the Musical was written Lawrence O’Keefe (Bat Boy, Legally Blonde) and Kevin Murphy (Reefer Madness, “Desperate Housewives”).

Genre:  Musical, Dark Comedy

Synopsis:  Veronica Sawyer, a beautiful brainy teenage misfit with a defective moral compass, hustles her way into the most powerful and ruthless clique at Westerberg High: the Heathers, an unattainable, unaffected and unabashedly unkind trio who mock and bully their kingdom into submission. But before she can get comfortable atop the high school food chain, Veronica falls in love with the dangerously handsome 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 butt… but J.D. has another plan for that bullet.

Accolades:  Heathers received two Drama Desk nominations (Outstanding Music and Outstanding Actress in a Musical) and two Lucille Lortel nominations (Outstanding Lead Actress in a Musical and Outstanding Choreography).

Historical Note: The first performance of Heathers: The Musical was September 2010 at Joe’s Pub in New York City, followed by a run at the Hudson Backstage Theatre in Los Angeles in 2013. Heathers returned to New York Off-Broadway in March 2013 at New World Stages under the direction of Andy Fickman and ran through August 4, 2014. Its Off Broadway run was followed by an engagement in the West End in 2018.
