American Repertory Theater of WNY545 Elmwood Ave Buffalo, NY 14222
Scheduled to get the 2018-19 season off to explosive start is the local premier of the musical based on the 1988 cult-classic film, HEATHERS. In her Artistic Director inaugural season and making her debut as a director for ART/WNY, Candice Kogut will oversee this compelling and timely piece of American musical theater.
With music, lyrics, and a book by Laurence O'Keefe ( of BATBOY and LEGALLY BLONDE score fame) and Kevin Murphy (lyrics and co-wrote the book for REEFER MADNESS), the story of HEATHERS: THE MUSICAL tells the story of Westerberg High School being terrorized by a shoulder-padded, scrunchie-wearing junta: Heather, Heather and Heather (the hottest and cruelest girls in all of Ohio). But when rebel with a clue Veronica Sawyer rejects their evil regime for a dark sexy stranger J.D., who plans to put the Heathers in their rightful six-feet-under place, Westerberg High will see a new sheriff in town -once the smoke clears.
Director Candice Kogut has assembled an outstanding leading cast featuring, alumni Madalyn Teal (JESUS CHRIST SUPERSTAR) as ‘Veronica’, company newcomer Joe Russi as ‘JD’, ART/WNY choreographer-in-residence Carly Luksch as ‘Chandler’, alumni Kelly O'Hara (JESUS CHRIST SUPERSTAR) as ‘McNamara’, with ART/WNY debutantes Talia Mobley as ‘Duke’, Parker Welling as ‘Kurt’, Jake Grear as ‘Ram’ and Kaeli McGinnis as ‘Martha’, ART/WNY alumnis Katy Miner (HELLO AGAIN, FIRST LADY SUITE) as ‘Mrs Flemming’, Nick Lama (A BEHANDING IN SPOKANE, JESUS CHRIST SUPERSTAR) as ‘Ram’s Dad’, and Rich Kraemer (THE UNDERPANTS, FLOYD COLLINS) as ‘Kurt’s Dad’ will round off the leads.
