‘Dear Diary. July 12th, 2021.’ The day I battled through the wind and rain to see Heathers in the West End. Read more
Following a London premiere at The Other Palace and a subsequent West End transfer in 2018, Heathers is back at Theatre Royal Haymarket. School is back in session this summer, as Heathers is in the West End in 2021, with Heathers tickets on sale now.
Heathers follows Veronica Sawyer, a high school “nobody” that dreams of becoming popular. Her call is finally answered when she’s accepted into the ‘Heathers’ clique, sitting at the top of the high school social pyramid.
When Veronica attracts the attention of mysterious teen rebel Jason Dean, or JD for short, she’s lovestruck. But, as she begins to behave in order to fit in with the crowd, can Veronica remain true to herself. Shocking actions and testimonies await in Heathers, where it’s murder being a somebody.
Heathers is based on the 1989 film of the same name, starring Winona Ryder and Christian Slater. The musical adaptation of Heathers features a book, music and lyrics by Kevin Murphy and Laurence O’Keefe, with songs including “Big Fun”, “Dead Girl Walking” and “Seventeen.” For the 2018 production in London, a new song was written for the Heathers musical. “I Say No” debuted in London, and is sung by Veronica Sawyer.
Heathers was first at The Other Palace in 2018, then transferring to the Theatre Royal Haymarket starring West End sensation Carrie Hope Fletcher as Veronica Sawyer. Jamie Muscato played JD, with Sophie Isaacs, T'Shaan Williams and Jodie Steele as the three Heathers.
The 2021 cast of Heathers in London includes Christina Bennington as Veronica Sawyer, previously in Bat Out of Hell at the Dominion Theatre. Jordan Luke Gage plays JD, currently starring as Romeo in the world premiere of & Juliet, which transferred to the Shaftesbury Theatre.
In a review of Heathers for LondonTheatre.co.uk, Heathers is a musical for the college kids, they’re the ones who are going to see themselves in it, that will be singing these belting songs with their friends. I laughed, witnessed some top-class performances, and woke up singing the songs. How very.”
Heathers tickets in London are on sale now.

Our Review of Heathers The Musical
Given its colourful design and glittery pop soundtrack, you’d be forgiven for thinking Heathers is a light-hearted coming-of-age, high school comedy, but it’s bloody dark: murder and suicide, bulimia and bullying dominate the Westerberg campus. Based on the ‘80s Winona Ryder film, this musical offering has earned a cult following over the years on the back of its zany humour and infectious soundtrack, and it now lands in the West End starring musical theatre stalwart Carrie...
