Barrett Wilbert Weed, Ryan McCartan, Jessica Keenan Wynn & More to Star in HEATHERS: THE MUSICAL Off-Broadway; Full Cast Announced
The feature film Heathers was released in March 1989 and helped launch the careers of actors Winona Ryder (Veronica), Christian Slater (J.D.) and Shannen Doherty (Heather Duke). The film became a cult favorite, spawning memorable phrases such as "What's your damage?", "It'll be very," and "Are we going to prom or to hell?" that have since enriched the pop culture lexicon. In 2006, Heathers was included in the top five of Entertainment Weekly's list of the "Greatest High School Movies of All Time".
Direct from the sold-out world premiere engagement at the Hudson Backstage Theatre in Los Angeles, Heathers: The Musical is produced Off-Broadway by Bruce Bendell (Grace), Jamie Bendell (A Gentleman's Guide To Love And Murder), Scott Benson (Inappropriate: The Musical), Andy Cohen (Untraceable, Captain Ron), J. Todd Harris (The Kids Are All Right, Bottle Shock, Dr. Zhivago Australian Tour), Amy Powers (Dr. Zhivago, The Game), Scott Prisand (Rock Of Ages, Legally Blonde, Grace) and Big Block Theatrical. Fickman, Murphy and O'Keefe are also producers. Denise Di Novi (the film Heathers; Crazy, Stupid Love) will executive produce.
