On Monday, September 13 at 7:00 & 9:30 PM, HEATHERS: THE MUSICAL is making its New York City debut with a concert at Joe's Pub at The Public Theater. The concert will feature songs from the upcoming musical with a full band. Some of Broadway's greats will lend their voices for this special evening. Specific casting details will be announced shortly. Tickets are $20.
HEATHERS: THE MUSICAL is based on the original teen dark comedy motion picture by Dan Waters, which launched the careers of Winona Ryder and Christian Slater. The classic high school thriller features love, murder, power politics and even a little hope in the depths of an inferno even Dante couldn't imagine: eleventh grade.
The show is being presented by some of Hollywood and the Great White Way's most talented names: Producer - Andy Cohen (Untraceable), Music Director - Mary Mitchell Campbell (The Addams Family, Company, Road Show), Director/Producer - Andy Fickman (Reefer Madness (stage/film), Jewtopia, She's The Man, The Game Plan, Race To Witch Mountain, and the upcoming You Again), Producer - J. Todd Harris (Bottle Shock, The Kids Are All Right, Piranha 3D), Book/Music/Lyrics/Producer - Kevin Murphy (Reefer Madness (stage/film), Desperate Housewives, Caprica, Hellcats), Book/Music/Lyrics/Producer - Laurence O'Keefe (Bat Boy, Legally Blonde, Sarah Plain & Tall, The Daily Show) and Producer - Amy Powers (Sharpay's Fabulous Adventure, Mattel's Barbie Musicals, Dr. Zhivago The Musical) in association with Sh-K-Boom Records, La Jolla Playhouse, Lakeshore Entertainment and Denise Di Novi.
On Wednesday, September 15 at 7:00 PM, the Happy Ending Music and Reading Series, chosen by New York Magazine and NY Press as the best reading series in NYC, and singled out by the New York Times Magazine for helping to "Keep downtown alive," features the most interesting storytellers, writers, musicians, raconteurs and personalities, and requires the readers to take one public risk, while the musicians, who perform two short sets with their original, lyric-driven music, are required to play one cover song and try to get the audience to sing along. Tickets are $15.
