Heathers The Musical at The Other Palace

Heathers The Musical at The Other Palace

Loved the film? You’ll love the musical

By Carly-Ann Clements First Published 20 June 2018, Last Updated 20 June 2018

Last night, Heathers The Musical officially opened and it absolutely KILLED IT! The crowds went wild for Kevin Murphy and Laurence O’Keefe’s dark comic musical. And, really, are we surprised? With Carrie Hope Fletcher in lead as Veronica and Jamie Muscato playing her bad-boy boyfriend JD, you’d think that’d be enough star power to fuel this explosive show. But, the cast is made up of exemplary performers who all have their moment to shine. Don’t believe us? Just watch the crowd’s reaction during the standing ovation.

Based on the cult classic film, Heathers – starring Wynona Ryder and Christian Slater – it’s got us thinking about all those other film-to-stage productions you can see in the West End. So, if you loved Heathers (or couldn’t get a ticket) here are some other shows you’ll probably love because you loved the film.

School Of Rock

 

Based on the 2003 comedy starring Jack Black, School Of Rock tells of a wayward musician who finds himself without a job, without a band and without a plan. Intercepting a call for his flatmate, he winds up taking a substitute teacher position at a prestigious private school where he teaches the value of rock… but not Maths, Enligh and Science.

Kinky Boots

 

The Olivier and Tony Award-winner came to be after the 2005 film that tells the true story of a man who inherits a failing shoe factory which leads to him forming an unlikely business partnership with a drag artist. Packed with sequins, glamour and a whole lot of love, it’s a feel-good show that will have you searching for your very own Kinky Boots.

The Prince Of Thieves stole everyone’s heart back in 1992 when Disney released the animated film which quickly rocketed to many people’s fave list. Since, the musical has been taking people on a magic carpet ride of West End brilliance. Stop wishing. See your childhood hero come to life.

Which came first, the book or the film? Well, clearly it’s the book. But each incantation of Roald Dahl’s much-loved tale is unique and offers its own charm. The RSC’s multi-award-winning show has been enchanting West End audiences since 2011. So go on. Be a little bit naughty. You deserve it.

The Oscar-nominated Mel Brooke’s film made a generation howl with laughter and put Putting On The Ritz on the map in 1074. And last year’s stage adaptation has done exactly the same for West End goers. Filled with cheeky jokes, tongue-in-cheek songs and a whole lot of silliness, Young Frankenstein will give you LIFE!

Strictly Ballroom The Musical at Piccadilly Theatre
 

Strictly Ballroom

 

So. Much. FUN! The era-defying Baz Luhrmann film rekindled the world’s love of ballroom dancing. And this year’s musical has rekindled the West End’s love for joyful shows. Full of colour, fake tan and pop songs sung live by Will Young, this live-action version of the cult 90s film will have you feeling the love in the air.

Disney’s The Lion King

 

The pride of the West End, The Lion King has been wowing audiences for 19 years. The pioneering show brings animals to life with innovative and industry-changing puppets. Set to those spine-tingling Elton John songs from the film, it’s a walk down memory lane which you’ll want to do again and again.

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. Our producers continue to plan for all eventualities dependent on the individual needs of their shows and we will provide further updates on specific shows as and when they become available.

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.
