Heathers is a musical with music, lyrics, and a book by Laurence O'Keefe and Kevin Murphy and based on the 1988 film Heathers. It originally had a readings and eventually a concert on September 13 and 14, 2010 at Joe's Pub.
The show's director, Andy Fickman, had been working with Daniel Waters (the screenwriter of the film) on the musical. After seeing what O'Keefe did with Legally Blonde and how he transitioned film to theatre, he decided to pair him with Reefer Madness collaborator Kevin Murphy. Flickman said of the experience, "we found that Heathers gave a great deal of opportunity for ‘80s commentary and a great chance for music and storytelling".
On September 13 and 14, it was presented as a concert at Joe's Pub. The show was directed by Andy Fickman, and it starred Annaleigh Ashford as Veronica Sawyer, Jeremy Jordan as Jason Dean, Jenna Leigh Green as Heather Chandler, Corri English as Heather McNamara and Christine Lakin as Heather Duke, James Snyder as Kurt Kelly, PJ Griffith as Ram Sweeney, Julie Garnyé as Martha Dumptruck Dunnstock, Eric Leviton as Ram's Dad, Kevin Pariseau as Kurt's Dad/Principal, Jill Abramovitz as Ms. Fleming/Veronica's Mom, Tom Compton as Hipster Dork/Preppy Kid, Alex Ellis as Goth Girl/English Teacher/Young Republicanette and Kelly Karbacz as Stoner Chick/School Psychologist.
