Heathers the Musical has returned to the West End ahead of its third  tour– where it will play for a limited run this summer.

The WhatsOnStage Award-winning musical features a book, music and lyrics by Kevin Murphy and Laurence O’Keefe, and is based on the 1989 cult film of the same name, starring Winona Ryder and Christian Slater.

The production is directed by Andy Fickman, with choreography by associate director Gary Lloyd, designs by David Shields, lighting by Ben Cracknell and sound by Dan Samson.

Heathers previously ran at The Other Palace and in the West End in 2018 and 2021. The show was then re-staged from 2021 to 2023 back at The Other Palace, and it has also mounted two UK tours.

Produced by Bill Kenwright Ltd and Paul Taylor-Mills, the new London run will take place at @sohoplace to 6 July 2024, before embarking on its third UK tour, opening at Theatre Royal Windsor on 24 July.

At @sohoplace, audiences can expect to “experience Heathers the Musical differently – up close and personal”.
