I went to see Heathers last year when it was in the west end – mainly because one of my favourite actresses (Carrie Hope Fletcher) was in it, but it turned out to be one of the best musicals I’ve seen – and completely not what I expected.
While I was there, I picked up this script as a memento of what I’d seen, and today I spent a fabulous couple of hours reading through the script while listening to the soundtrack. It brought back all the memories of being in that theatre and watching it live – I wish I could go back and do it again!
I’ve not watched the film yet, but if you’ve seen the film I’ve heard that the musical is quite different. The songs are so catchy though, it was impossible to read the script without singing along.
Unfortunately, the themes and the language are a bit too ‘grown-up’ for my youth group ages, so it’s not something we’d ever be able to do with them and the script book will go unused, but it will sure bring back some fabulous memories each time I read it!
