Heathers the Musical has come to New York City and yes its is as fun as you might think it is. Based on the cult classic 80's movie of the same name starring a young Winona Ryder and Christian Slater, Heathers tells the story of Veronica, smart and pretty teen that tries to fit in with the cool crowd. But she falls for a new, dark stranger and loses her "cool" cred and wants to get revenge, but how far does she go?
The show is campy and it too be expected. I laughed out loud and enjoyed the majority of the performances. There are some clever and catchy songs and while the staging is simple, it works. This is an off-Broadway show and the talent is for the most part is of that caliber. There was not anyone that was truly amazing and at the same time there was not anyone that was terrible. That being said, if the price is right and you are looking for some fun 80's nostalgia, take a look at Heathers the Musical.
