Today it was announced that the killer rock musical Heathers The Musical will be playing at The Other Palace for a strictly limited run and we’re dying for a ticket.
The run follows a sell-out workshop that took place at The Other Palace for five performances only in 2017. Now, it’s back in class this summer with new songs, new material, and new classmates… and we are so in.
Adapted from one of the best cult teen films of all time, Heathers The Musical tells the twisted but hilarious tale of Veronica Sawyer. Veronica is one of the most popular girls in her school. But things aren’t all sunshine and roses as the other members of her clique – the Heathers – are hateful and feared and Veronica wants out. A chance meeting with a new student, JD, leads Veronica on a dark path with unexpected results.
Oliviers presenter Carrie Hope Fletcher will play Veronica in this wicked tale about friendship and deadly obsession. In addition to hosting the Road To The Oliviers and the winners’ reactions live videos at the 2018 Olivier Awards with Mastercard, Carrie is famed for her award-winning turn as Wednesday Addams in The Addams Family, plus she’s played Eponine in Les Misérables.
Heathers The Musical is written by Olivier Award-winner Laurence O’Keefe (Legally Blonde) and Kevin Murphy (Desperate Housewives), with Andy Fickman directing.
On The Other Palace run, Andy has said: “after the incredibly warm reception our workshop received last year, we are hugely grateful to Bill, The Other Palace, and Paul for affording us a once in a lifetime opportunity to refine the book, add new songs, and re-imagine the staging for this show which has been such an extraordinary labor of love for us. We thank them gently with a chainsaw.”
Heathers The Musical had a sold-out run in LA in 2013 before transferring to off-Broadway in 2014. And we’ve been waiting for what feels like forever for it to come to London. With a strictly limited eight-week run from 9 June – 4 August 2018, you’ll have to be quick to score tickets.
