Friendship, Betrayal, Death, High School … “How Very!”
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.
Adapted from the 1988 cult classic movie written by Daniel Waters, with book, music, and lyrics by Laurence O’Keefe and Kevin Murphy, 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 is fast becoming one of the most popular new musicals around. Are you in, or are you out?
