Heather McNamara, Heather Duke, and the almighty, mythic bitch herself, Heather Chandler, are taking the stage at Feinstein's/54 Below for one-night-only concert version of the global cult phenomenon, Off-Broadway hit musical Heathers that is sure to have you saying, "How very."
Based on the dark, cult classic film from 1988, Heathers features songs that have entered the musical theater lexicon, from "Seventeen" and "Candy Store" to "Dead Girl Walking" and "Freeze Your Brain." The tale follows angsty teen Veronica Sawyer as she strives to fit in with a group of high school queens known as the Heathers - and as she falls for a mysterious teen with a penchant for Slurpees and vigilante justice.
Original cast member Rachel Flynn (Heathers, Dave the Musical) directs with creative consultation by original co-author Laurence O'Keefe. Geraldine Anello (Irish Repertory Theatre's Finian's Rainbow, 54 Sings 1776) music directs. Amy Sapp (54 Sings 1776, 54 Sings Jonas Brothers) produces.
