Heathers the Musical to transfer to the West End
The Other Palace’s production of Heathers the Musical is set for a West End run following a hugely successful run at the theatre.
Starring Carrie Hope Fletcher, Heathers is based on the cult ‘80s film starring Christian Slater and Winona Ryder which tells the story of a schoolgirl called Veronica looking to break away from her group of cliquey friends, all three of whom are called Heather.
The transfer was announced on stage following tonight’s performance of the show at The Other Palace, where the musical first received workshop performances last year before a full production was mounted, directed by Andy Fickman.
With music and lyrics by Kevin Murphy and Laurence O’Keefe, whose previous credits include Legally Blonde: The Musical and Bat Boy: The Musical, Heathers includes the songs “Beautiful”, “Seventeen”, “Candy Store” and “Shine a Light”.
The cast of The Other Palace run includes Jamie Muscato as JD and Jodie Steele, T’Shan Williams and Sophie Isaacs as Heathers Chandler, Duke and McNamara. You can watch a video of Muscato and Fletcher performing “Seventeen” live below this story.
It will be the first production of The Other Palace to transfer to the West End since its reincarnation from the St James Theatre early last year.
Heathers the Musical tickets are available now.
