Heathers The Musical description

Heathers The Musical – A brilliantly bitchy rock musical!

The original movie 'Heathers' was a huge hit in 1988, fast becoming a cult film. The stage adaptation made a splash in Los Angeles, USA, before going Off-Broadway during 2014. It scored a massive hit in the UK, first at The Other Palace then at the Theatre Royal Haymarket. Now, post-lockdown, it's back to delight us, and there's also a touring production on the cards.

The show is written by Laurence O’Keefe and Kevin Murphy and directed by Andy Fickman, together with the Associate Director Gary Lloyd who also handles the choreography. The design is by David Shields, the Lighting by Ben Cracknell and the Sound by Dan Samson. Don't miss this outrageous feast of high school fun!

What's the plot of Heathers The Musical?

Heathers: The Musical is a super-cool, wickedly adult rock musical. The plot whisks us to Westerberg High, the senior school where Veronica Sawyer is just one of hundreds of ordinary girls who nobody notices. When she's taken under the wing of the school's three most popular girls, each called Heather, her life takes a very different turn.

The Heathers are gorgeous, sophisticated and fun. But they're also cruel and bitchy. When Veronica's dreams of high-octane school popularity stardom start to come true, things get really interesting. When the gorgeous mystery man, JD, arrives at the school, Veronica falls head over heels in love. But the road to happiness is a rocky one and she eventually realises that while it's awful being a nobody, being a somebody can end up being a whole lot worse.

Who is Heathers The Musical for?

Heathers The Musical isn't for kids, it's full of thrilling grown-up themes like teen bullying, sexual assault, rape, murder, suicide and politics, so leave your little ones at home! It's perfect if you're 16 or older.

Outdated

Personally I found Heathers quite disturbing. Whilst I understand it is set in the 90s, it portrayed an outdated and unwanted view of homosexuality, glamourised bullying, attempted to justify murder and contained scenes of young people hanging them selves. I was uncomfortable watching it, perhaps that was the point, and had it been done in such a way that was thought provoking I could understand my life uncomfortable feelings however it was done to a soundtrack of some high pitch screeching songs by ‘the Heathers’ and lacked the normal connectable tragedy and joy bought to life by big numbers of most musicals. Not for me and perhaps more suited to a teenage audience although with a big mental health warning.

Bright, entertaining, well-performed show.

A lighthearted take on a dark subject. Our party ranged im age from 13-56, and all loved the show. Excellent singing and acting. For those who love the film, and those who have never heard of it.

Colourful, entertaining, captivating

Heathers was a half term treat for my daughter who knows the story word for word. She was super excited and you did not disappoint her! I only knew the story on the basest level but the performance we saw was thought provoking, entertaining and attention grabbing. The story was easy to follow - even for a novice like me - and the attention to detail in costume, set, words and music made for a sensational experience.

I felt the story was not well thought through and the music the same. I feel it was kind of forced into a musical. There were only a few melodies and memorable songs.

A fun crowd pleaser.

Not a thought provoking and poignant epic. This is rowdy, raunchy crowd pleasing fun with excellent music and 80’s nostalgia. Definitely for teens and up.
