Heathers: The Musical, which continues at London's Other Palace, will embark on a U.K. and Ireland tour in 2023.
Produced by Bill Kenwright and Paul Taylor-Mills, the tour will launch February 14–25, 2023, at the Theatre Royal in Windsor and is currently scheduled to continue through August 2023 with a final stop at Manchester's Palace Theatre August 8-12. Casting will be announced at a later date.
Based on the 1989 cult favorite film, Heathers: The Musical follows Westerberg High student Veronica Sawyer, who's on track to become one of the most popular girls in school after befriending the beautiful but cruel Heathers, only to meet a mysterious teen rebel who changes everything.
The musical premiered at Los Angeles' Hudson Backstage Theatre in 2013 before moving Off-Broadway the following year. The New York run would prove to be short-lived, running less than four months, but the musical followed the success of its source material to become a cult favorite thanks to its cast album and productions at regional theatres and schools.
The musical subsequently bowed at London's The Other Palace in 2018 before breaking box-office records and transferring to Theatre Royal Haymarket the same year. Since its debut, the production toured the U.K. and played an encore run at the Haymarket that later transferred back to its original home at The Other Palace, where it was filmed on stage and broadcast on Roku earlier this year.
The musical is directed by Andy Fickman with choreography by Gary Lloyd, design by David Shields, lighting by Ben Cracknell, and sound by Dan Samson.
