Mean girls, rejoice: 'Heathers' musical comingDecember 10, 2013 @ 3:55 pm
NEW YORK (AP) - Before there was "Mean Girls," there was "Heathers." Now that dark comedy is ready to bully its way into New York as a musical.
The 1988 film starring Winona Ryder, Shannen Doherty and Christian Slater has been turned into a show by Tony Award nominee Laurence O'Keefe and Emmy Award winner Kevin Murphy.
It starts performances off-Broadway in March at New World Stages after a stint in Los Angeles this year. Andy Fickman directs.
It tells the story of a high school misfit in Ohio who teams up with her boyfriend to kill her mean but popular classmates _ most called Heather _ and make it look like suicide.
O'Keefe wrote the music and lyrics to the Broadway show "Legally Blonde" and Kevin Murphy penned the lyrics to "Reefer Madness."
