One of cinema’s snarkiest, most quotable films, Heathers, is making its off-Broadway debut in spring 2014. The Michael Lehmann-directed movie about a group of mean girls at an Ohio high school, the Heathers, and the rebellious outsider (Christian Slater) who draws one of them (Winona Ryder) into his nefarious plan to get rid of the other girls, has been a hit at the Hudson Backstage Theatre in Los Angeles with plans for a “limited engagement” at New World Stages, according to THR, and previews start March 17 (opening night is March 31).
We have two clips of a three-concert performance in New York City to share if you’re curious. Andy Fickman of Reefer Madness fame directed the production and is attached to the spring run. Laurence O'Keefe (Legally Blonde) wrote the music and lyrics for the West Coast version and joins Fickman. The dark cult comedy is excellent fodder for a series of sardonic tunes we can’t wait to get inside our ear holes. There’s no confirmation if the below songs will be part of the New York staging, but we sure hope so, because these are fantastic.
