Step Into to the Candy Store! HEATHERS to Head to The Other Palace in London

It'll be very! Baz Bamigboye of The Daily Mail has reported that the West End is set to get its very own production of the homicidal high school musical, Heathers, which is set to begin its run at The Other Palace beginning 9 June.

According to Baz, Carrie Hope Fletcher will star as Veronica in the musical, a role made famous by Winona Ryder in the film. An author, musician, and YouTube star, Fletcher has appeared on the West End in Les Miserables, Mary Poppins and the UK tours of Chitty Chitty, Bang Bang and The Addams Family.

HEATHERS: THE MUSICAL played a sold-out world premiere engagement at L.A.'s Hudson Theatre in Fall 2013 before transferring to New York's New World Stages in Spring 2014.

The original critically-acclaimed off-Broadway production received two 2014 Drama Desk Nominations (Outstanding Leading Actress in a Musical; Outstanding Music), two Lucille Lortel Award nominations (Outstanding Lead Actress in a Musical; Outstanding Choreography) and a Best New Musical nomination from the Off-Broadway Alliance Awards. The world premiere cast recording of Heathers: The Musical was released on June 17, 2014, and debuted as the No. 1 theatre soundtrack on the iTunes chart, and No. 5 on the Billboard Cast Album chart.

September, 1989. Westerberg High is terrorized by a shoulder-padded, scrunchie-wearing junta: Heather, Heather and Heather, the hottest and cruelest girls in all of Ohio. But misfit Veronica Sawyer rejects their evil regime for a new boyfriend, the dark sexy stranger J.D., who plans to put the Heathers in their place - six feet under.

The feature film Heathers was released on March 31, 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 "Greetings and Salutations" 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".
