Heathers

Description

Based on the 1988 cult film of the same name, Heathers The Musical 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.

Brought to you by the award-winning creative team of Kevin Murphy (Reefer Madness, Desperate Housewives), Laurence O’Keefe (Bat Boy, Legally Blonde), and Andy Fickman (Reefer Madness, She’s the Man). Heathers is a new show based on the greatest teen comedy of all time. With its side-splitting, twisted humor, heartfelt romance, and unflinching take on the joys and anguish of high school, Kokandy’s Heathers will surely be Chicago's most popular new musical. Are you in, or are you out?
