There's no doubt that Heathers the Musical is in excellent shape, delivering some unexpected narrative twists, great music and dedicated performances. Those heading to The Other Palace expecting a typical teen musical with light-hearted fare will be in for a shock. And having a disruptor like that as part of our theatrical landscape is definitely a welcome addition.
Yet for all the oomph in Andy Fickman’s production, Heathers the Musical is a blander rejig of a distinctive original that is motored by a disappointing set of songs.
...this almost entirely recast Heathers emerges as a cleverer, more exhilarating beast ... than the original iteration, which won the 2019 WhatsOnStage Award for Best Musical.
But this is a toothless, lip-glossed affair that replaces the original’s ironic cruelty with cartoonish grotesquerie...Honestly, it’s exhausting. Yes, Heathers the Musical is “bad taste”. But it’s also, I’m afraid, plain bad.
Christina Bennington is terrifically energetic as protagonist Veronica, skilfully navigating a clumsily written part that positions her as both the show’s sardonic narrator and its conflicted emotional heart.
