Heathers: The Musical
“Dear Diary: My teen angst bulls**t now has a body count.” And that’s Heathers in a nutshell. New girl Veronica Sawyer joins the titular high-school clique, but soon discovers bumping off the Heathers is more fun than playing croquet with them and mocking Martha “Dumptruck” Dunnstock. Driving her down this path is bad boy J.D. Dean, whose too-cool attitude just might be masking a psychopathic streak. With a dark sense humor that inspires equal parts laughs and gasps, the endlessly quotable movie this musical follows brightened up homicide with a healthy dose of teenage sarcasm, shaping the slang of a generation along the way. In a word, Heathers was very.
Sharing writing duties on the gruesomely funny stage adaptation are Kevin Murphy and Laurence O’Keefe, whose previous credits include the Emmy-winning movie adaptation of Reefer Madness and the Tony-nominated Broadway musical Legally Blonde. Joining them is director Andy Fickman, who took Reefer Madness to the stage and screen. Together, their efforts have paid off. The New York Times called Heathers: The Musical “a rowdy guilty-pleasure musical . . . that turns an Ohio senior class in-crowd into a lineup of piñatas, waiting to be busted open.”
