Great singing, Funny, Entertaining

See it if you’re a fan of the film and musical hype. This show attracts a younger audience and has quite a cult following so expect lots of screaming.

Don't see it if you’re triggered by suicide or murder

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.

For a previous production

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.

For a previous production

For a previous production

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.

For a previous production

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.
