Book Heathers The Musical Tickets

Following a number of workshop performances and then a full production at The Other Palace, Laurence O'Keefe and Kevin Murphy musical adaptation of Heathers is set to transfer to West End. It will run at the Theatre Royal Haymarket from 3rd September to 24th November starring West End sensation Carrie Hope Fletcher, with tickets on sale now.

Heathers: the Musical premiered Off-Broadway in 2014 and is based on the 1988 film of the same name which is about a group four teenage girls – three of whom share the first name Heather - at high school in Ohio. Veronica, the fourth friend, has had enough and longs to return to her old life and geeky friends. The film starred Winona Ryder and Christian Slater, and gained cult status.

Carrie Hope Fletcher will play Veronica in the musical. Her previous stage credits include Éponine in Les Miserables, Wednesday Addams in The Addams Family, and Truly Scrumptious in Chitty Chitty Bang Bang. She has also just released her debut album, When the Curtain Falls, and has had a number of best-selling books and boasts over 640,000 subscribers on her YouTube channel.

The musical version was adapted by O’Keefe (Legally Blonde) and Murphy (Reefer Madness), and features songs such as “Seventeen”, "Candy Store", “Beautiful” and “Shine a Light”. It got its UK premiere with five workshop performances at The Other Palace, with a cast that included Charlotte Wakefield, Jamie Muscato and Sophie Isaacs, and went on to recieve a full production which starred Fletcher, Muscato, Isaacs, T'Shaan Williams and Jodie Steele.

Heathers The Musical Tickets are now available.

TIME OUT SAYS *****


A West End transfer for the musical theatre version of the cult teen movie

Well, f*** us gently with a chainsaw – 'Heathers' is finally getting the West End musical production it deserves. Writers Laurence O’Keefe and Kevin Murphy have adapted the classic movie about a bunch of murderous teen psychopaths into a musical that's already entertained audiences in Los Angeles and Off-Broadway. Now, following a lengthy tryout at The Other Palace in Victoria over the summer, it transfers to the Haymarket for a 12-week-run with its newly revised book and a gory spattering of new songs.

Carrie Hope Fletcher will step into Winona Ryder's shoes as kilted misanthrope Veronica Sawyer: appropriately, she's fresh from a turn as the similarly murderous Wednesday in a touring production of 'The Addams Family'. 'Heathers' is directed by Andy Fickman, with choreography by Gary Lloyd ('Thriller', 'Carrie'). Bring your own mineral water.

Musical Manda Says  *****

Following a hugely successful workshop of Heathers at The Other Palace last summer this brand new production has already been a hit with audience members; selling almost all of the tickets before opening night. This UK premiere features new songs, a refined book and re-imagined staging. Heathers is based on the cult 1980’s film of the same title which starred Winona Ryder and Christian Slater. It focuses on Veronica Sawyer, three ultra-popular Heathers who rule Westerberg High and a new, mysterious rebel called JD. With tensions rising, JD teaches Veronica that ‘it might kill to be a nobody but it’s murder being a somebody…’

Carrie Hope Fletcher is brilliant as Veronica Sawyer. Not only is she able to make the character believable, despite all the high school drama, but she is hilarious too. Vocally, Carrie pulls the power notes off with ease and it is great to see her delicate side during songs like ‘Seventeen‘. If looks could kill, then the audience would be goners after Jodie Steele’s fantastic performance as Heather Chandler. Not only does she have the evil glare to kill, her vocals are outstanding. All three Heathers get their chance to shine and T’Shan Williams excels during her song ‘Never Shut Up Again‘. Sophie Isaacs shows that despite her small frame she can deliver powerful and passionate vocals during ‘Lifeboat‘.

The whole cast are enthusiastic and extremely talented throughout the action-packed show. Jamie Muscato’s sinister edge as the character of JD is superb and his relationship with Carrie is fantastic, particularly during ‘Our Love is God‘. Jenny O’Leary also blows the audience away during her emotional song ‘Kindergarten Boyfriend‘. In addition, Olivia Moore stood out in the ensemble. This is her West End debut and certainly someone to look out for in the future.


The musical is great fun and energetic throughout. The music and lyrics by Kevin Murphy and Laurence O’Keefe are catchy and hilarious at the same time. There’s a great mix of songs and catchy tunes that are guaranteed to stick in audience’s heads. Direction by Andy Fickman certainly brings the show alive and the well executed choreography, designed by Gary Lloyd moves the show into the 21st Century. The stylised slo-motion sections and freeze frames are especially effective when coupled with the brilliant lighting by Ben Cracknell. For such a small stage, the set which is designed by David Shields is substantial. The entire stage is utilised and various locations are created with ease. At some points the multiple set changes do distract slightly from the show in this busy plot but this is a minor issue in this outstanding production.

Having not even been open a week yet, this production has already sold out. Most of these tickets had sold before rehearsals had even started. Much of this is due to the cult factor of the show, coupled with perhaps a large following for its lead performer. However, this show thoroughly deserves to be sold out. It is a fantastic demonstration of musical theatre. Catchy songs, hilarious and serious at the same time and guaranteed to make the audience smile and cheer throughout. What more could you want?

Theatre Royal Haymarket

Address:  8 Haymarket, London, SW1Y 4HT
Capacity: 888

Built in 1720. Re-built in 1820 by John Nash.

The Theatre Royal Haymarket, known originally as ‘The Little Theatre in the Hay’, is a Grade I listed building situated in the heart of the West End. Designed and constructed by John Potter in 1720 it is one of Britain’s most treasured theatres. The theatre seats 893 patrons and is the third oldest London Playhouse still in use. 

Today the Haymarket strives to produce memorable theatrical experiences for audiences from around the world. Theatre Royal Haymarket Productions was set up in 2007 and has since produced some of the theatre’s most successful productions including Waiting for Godot and Flare Path. The seasons, led by artistic directors, Jonathan Kent, Sean Mathias and Sir Trevor Nunn, has seen performances from Sir Ian McKellen, Dame Eileen Atkins, Sir Patrick Stewart, Sienna Millar, Sheridan Smith, Ralph Fiennes, Joanna Lumley and Robert Lindsay to name but a few.

Encouraging the next generation of theatre makers has been paramount to the continued expansion of the Haymarket and in 1998 the theatre’s Chairman, Arnold M. Crook, set up The Theatre Royal Haymarket Masterclass Trust to offer young people exceptional creative opportunities and experiences with leaders of the theatre industry. Masterclass has broadened it spectrum in the past year with the introduction of the Bravo 22 Company, a project that used theatre as a tool to aid rehabilitation for wounded, injured and sick service men and women, culminating in the play The Two Worlds of Charlie F. After two sell out shows in January 2012, The Two Worlds of Charlie F. secured funding for a tour of the country and went on to win the Amnesty International Freedom of Expression Award 2012. It is a project we are immensely proud of. 


Seating

The auditorium has four levels - Stalls, Royal Circle, Upper Circle and Gallery.

The seating in the Stalls is very good, particularly as the overhang of the Dress Circle only really affects the view from Row V onwards. Of note, the narrowing of the auditorium towards the stage does affect the view of the outermost seats in Row H onwards.

The Royal Circle offers excellent view of the stage – the overhang of the Upper Circle doesn’t affect the view from any seat.

Seats in the Upper Circle curve towards the stage at the sides, and do not offer great legroom but views are pretty good for the price on offer.

The Gallery feels far from the stage, and the legroom available here is problematic.
