A rock musical with music, lyrics, and a book by Laurence O’Keefe and Kevin Murphy and based on the 1988 cult film Heathers., is the darkly delicious story of Veronica Sawyer, a brainy, beautiful teenage misfit who hustles her way into the most powerful and ruthless clique at Westerberg high: the Heathers. But before she can get comfortable atop the high school food chain, Veronica falls in love with the dangerously sexy new kid J.D. When Heather Chandler, the Almighty, kicks her out of the group, Veronica decides to bite the bullet and kiss Heather’s aerobicized ass. But J. D. has another plan for that bullet. The show, while a comedy, deals with issues of teen suicide, bullying, homophobia, and gun violence.
