It’s the moment every Heathers fan (or corn nuts as they’re also known) has been waiting for since…well since it first opened at The Other Palace last year. The Heathers The Musical West End cast album is out!

The album features the stunning vocals of Carrie Hope Fletcher (Veronica), Jodie Steele (Chandler), T’Shan Williams (Duke) and Sophie Isaacs (McNamara), alongside Jamie Muscato as rebellious transfer student Jason Dean (JD), Chris Chung (Kurt Kelly), Dominic Anderson (Ram Sweeney), Jenny O’Leary (Martha Dunnstock), Rebecca Lock (Ms. Flemming), Jon Boydon (Kurt’s Dad), Alex James Hatton (Officer Milner), Charlotte Jaconelli (Stoner Chick), Lauren Drew (New Wave Girl), Olivia Moore, and Sergio Pasquariello  (Officer McCord).

What are you waiting for? Check out this beautiful soundtrack! It’s much more fun than freezing your brain with a slushie!

Carrie Hope Fletcher said: ‘Being part of an original cast recording is exciting in itself. When it’s for a show you’ve been a fan of for years and have grown to love even more since being a part of it, it feels incredibly special. I hope the message of kindness that Heathers the Musical ultimately sends is spread even further with this recording!’

The album includes three previously unreleased new songs written exclusively for the West End production; ‘I Say No’, ‘Never Shut Up Again’ and ‘You’re Welcome’— which replaces ‘Blue’ on the World Premiere Cast Recording.

Talking about these new tracks for the London audience, writers Laurence O’Keefe and Kevin Murphy said, ‘We’ve made significant revisions to Heathers since the first album came out in 2014.  This is the first time the definitive version of the show has been recorded and getting to make a permanent record of this production is the icing on the cake.

“On the original cast recording, Heather Duke was the only Heather that didn’t have a full-length song, so when we were asked to re-work the show for London, adding this song was the top of our to-do list. ‘Never Shut Up Again’ dramatises this huge emotional moment for the character, as a girl with justifiable resentments and grievances finally achieves power, only to become even more cruel and brutal than her predecessor.

“The song ‘You’re Welcome’ shows Veronica’s point of view and gives her a chance to triumph over her tormentors in a way that ‘Blue’ did not. The decision to change the song was made because ‘Blue’ sent a message that wasn’t intended — that Veronica, cornered by two drunk, entitled, fairly violent football players, still wasn’t in any real danger, which sent a signal to the audience that this isn’t an important moment.  Although American productions of Heathers have been performing ‘You’re Welcome’ for some time now, this is the first time it’s been recorded.”

And it seems like the candy store is well and truly open, because if the album release wasn’t enough, two music videos, featuring Carrie and Jamie have also been released…

We now sell our famous TKTS Booth discounts online here at Official London Theatre.

We are now cancelling all performances up until and including 31 May 2020 to help us process existing bookings whilst we wait for further clarity from the government in terms of when we will be able to reopen.

We are so sorry that in these testing and difficult times you are not able to enjoy the show you have booked for and hope the following helps clarify next steps in respect of your tickets .

There is nothing that you need to do if your performance has been cancelled, but we do ask for your patience.

If you have booked directly with the theatre or show website for an affected performance, please be assured that they will contact you directly to arrange an exchange for a later date, a credit note/voucher or a refund. If you have booked via a ticket agent they will also be in contact with you directly.

We are processing in strict date order of performance, so you are likely to be contacted after the date you were due to go to the theatre. However, we want to reassure you that you will be contacted, and your order will be processed, but please do bear with us.

We’d like to thank everyone who has been patient and kind in dealing with their ticket providers so far and we are sorry that we cannot process your order as quickly as we would like.

Please do not contact your credit card company as that will slow the process down and put an additional burden on our box office and ticket agent teams.

In order for us to serve our audiences the best we can, please do not get in touch with your point of sale if you have booked for performances after 31 May. Please be reassured that if we have to cancel future performances you will be directly contacted by your theatre or ticket provider.

We look forward to welcoming you back into our theatres as soon as we are allowed to resume performances. In the meantime stay safe and healthy.

While theatres are currently closed, various venues and productions are making announcements for their individual shows, including cancellations and rescheduled performances. Please check with the individual shows for details.
