The London return of Heathers the Musical officially opened in the West End June 28. The musical is scheduled to play a 12-week limited engagement at the Theatre Royal Haymarket through September 11.
Based on the 1988 film, Heathers follows two teens who plot to kill the popular girls at their high school and put an end to their bullying. The comedic musical thriller, featuring music, lyrics, and a book by Laurence O’Keefe and Kevin Murphy, premiered in Los Angeles in 2013.
