Why See Heathers: The Musical?
Dear diary, my teen angst has a body count
So very! The original mean girls of teen-movie stardom are back in this deliciously dark musical adaptation from Laurence O'Keefe and Kevin Murphy. First seen in during a sell-out run in Los Angeles in 2013, it went on to host a successful Off-Broadway engagement the following year. Now it finally makes its way to London with West End favourite, Carrie Hope Fletcher in the role of Veronica Sawyer!
Based on the 1989 cult-classic, Heathers is the story of Veronica 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 hierachy.
But when the mysterious JD comes to class, Veronica may have found herself an ally in her hatred - one with murder on his mind. Pitch-black and racously funny, its a no-holds-barred look at the social strata of high school and the fate of anyone who might rally against it.
With a raft of songs including the infectious 'Candy Store', 'Prom or Hell' and many more, this bonkers adaptation is sure to have you rolling in the aisles, or if not, left with a finer appreciation of croquet.

It's an extraordinary thing, crammed with songs by Al Dubin and Harry Warren, full of the sound and fury of tapping feet, illuminated by dazzling colour.

Watkins has a rare capacity for playing outsiders, and while he doesn't exactly excite sympathy for Ralph, he increases our understanding, which, after all, is Lavery's ultimate intention.
