A West End transfer for the musical theatre version of the cult teen movie
Well, f*** us gently with a chainsaw – 'Heathers' is finally getting the West End musical production it deserves. Writers Laurence O’Keefe and Kevin Murphy have adapted the classic movie about a bunch of murderous teen psychopaths into a musical that's already entertained audiences in Los Angeles and Off-Broadway. Now, following a lengthy tryout at The Other Palace in Victoria over the summer, it transfers to the Haymarket for a 12-week-run with its newly revised book and a gory spattering of new songs.
Carrie Hope Fletcher will step into Winona Ryder's shoes as kilted misanthrope Veronica Sawyer: appropriately, she's fresh from a turn as the similarly murderous Wednesday in a touring production of 'The Addams Family'. 'Heathers' is directed by Andy Fickman, with choreography by Gary Lloyd ('Thriller', 'Carrie'). Bring your own mineral water.
