Check out what our West End reviewer, Scarlet, thought of Heathers which officially opened at the Theatre Royal Haymarket last night (September 13)!
Dear Diary, whether to kill yourself or not is one of the most important decisions a teenager can make, the next one is whether to go to Heathers The Musical on the West End - and if you want the short answer, I say yes! Based on the 1989 cult film Heathers, this rock musical will transport you back to your darker high-school days, and have you reminiscing about all the people you tried to avoid, yet still managed to find yourself wrapped up in their drama (or was that just me?)...
What is Heathers about?
Heathers is the story of Veronica Saywer and her inner turmoil as she traverses a high school ruled over by an intimating trio of scrunchie loving dictators - the Heathers. Consisting of Heather Chandler, Heather McNamara and Heather Duke, they stalk the halls of Westerburg High with an iron fist, verbally and mentally destroying anyone who gets in the way of their carefully guarded hierarchy.
But when the mysterious JD comes to class, Veronica may have found herself an ally in her hatred - albeit one with murder on his mind. Pitch-black and raucously funny, its a no-holds-barred look at the social strata of high school and the fate of anyone who might rally against it.
