Heathers, The Musical

Presented in collaboration with the WKU Department of Theatre and Dance.


Based on the classic 1989 film, Westerberg High is ruled 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 and sexy stranger J.D., who plans to put the Heathers in their place - six feet under. (Parental Warning for Intense Adult Themes and Strong Language).

REVIEWS: "A rowdy guilty pleasure." - NY Times
"Ingenious, naughty and very funny. Heathers still cliques." - NY Post
"Cue the corn nuts  and much-deserved applause. HOW VERY." - NY Daily News

AWARDS: Drama Desk Award for Outstanding Music Nominee
Off Broadway Alliance Award for Best New Musical Nominee
