Perez Reviews: Heathers

The new Heathers musical, currently playing off-Broadway, will fuck you gently with a chainsaw!

If you liked Legally Blonde the musical, which we did, then you will love Heathers!

The stage show based on the iconic '80s movie has everything the singing Elle Woods production did - including a lot of the same creative team - and MORE!

Heathers has sass, sex, songs and laughs! Lots of laughs!

Yes, there's really song in the show called My Dead Gay Son! And it WINS!!!

Big high five to Kevin Murphy & Laurence O'Keefe for not only writing those super fun songs but ALSO writing the equally fun book! Very unusual in the musical theater world and to be applauded!

Heathers is definitely an "off-Broadway" production and prime to make the jump to the Great White Way!

In this production, Veronica barely has any costume changes - a pitiful two or three!! On Broadway we'd want at least 12!

And can we do something about her wig ASAP, please? We know things are lower budget off-Broadway, but that's just CHEAP!

Thankfully, though, when our only main critique is the lack of costumes and the minimalistic stage, you know you've got a winner - with a very attractive and talented cast of up-and-comers!

Barret Wilbert Weed is no Winona Ryder, and she's not trying to be. Vocally she's amazing in Heathers and we enjoyed her acting too. But she's no Winona. She played Veronica a bit too cheery and optimistic, whereas Ryder brought more edge and darkness.

It was wonderful to see the adorable Elle McLemore from Bring It On again - putting her cheerleader skills to good use!

Jessica Keenan Wynn and Alice Lee were fab and fab as Heather Chandler and Heather Duke, respectively.

BUT….

The real star of this show is Ryan McCartan as JD Dean - aka the Christian Slater part.

McCartan is electric! We could not take our eyes off him onstage! And not just because he's dreamy to look at! The actor, currently starring on some Disney Channel show we'd never heard of before, has a BEAUTIFUL voice and so much presence! Star quality! He's truly magnetic on stage!

And he completely made us forget about Christian Slater! He was THAT good!

We really hope Heathers transfers to Broadway. We'd love to see them take this up a few notches! Bigger show and bigger audiences!

Heathers the TV show may have never worked out, but this could be the next best thing!

Well, the next best thing would be a leaked Winona Ryder & Christian Slater sex tape from 1989, but this is the second next best thing!

Start spreading the news, Heathers fans, because Heathers: The Musical is coming to New York!

The dark, cult comedy about teen suicide is hitting Off Broadway’s New World Stages next March!

Curious what the greatest high school movie of all time (with apologies to Clueless and Mean Girls) might look like on stage?

Take a look at the Dead Gay Son number from a previous version of the musical…AFTER THE JUMP!!!

Winona Ryder was far from the Heathers type in grade school!

Actually, the actress was so bullied in junior high that she had to drop out!

Believe it or not, the doe-eyed darling who famously dated Johnny Depp was picked on for appearing gay with her pixie cut 'do!

During a chat with V Magazine, Winona revealed:

Winona Ryder Steals Our Hearts With Her Sticky-Fingered Story!

If there is one thing we never expected Winona Ryder to say, it's "Beetlejuice, Beetlejuice, Beetlejuice!" — because we all know how that turns out!!

If there's another topic we thought would be taboo, however, it was the 41-year-old thespian's trouble with the law!

And we were wrong!!

The Black Swan starlet spoke candidly in Interview's May issue. She was neither shy about her 2001 shoplifting scandal nor the incidents in her life that led her there!

There's been quite a few unexpected surprises throughout the Broadway production of Orphans!

But thankfully, we're relieved to see that unlike the others, this one is actually pleasant!

During the opening night of the Alec Baldwin and Shia LaBeouf Ben Foster-starring play, held at the Gerald Schoenfeld Theatre, the rarely-seen Winona Ryder made an appearance on the red carpet!

Ch-ch-check her out (above and below)!

Looking good, gurl! Even if you are "stealing" all the attention from all of the other attendees!

LOLz! Okay, that was naughty of us!

We're TOTALLY kidding!

Here's hoping you consider making an appearance on Bravo's new Heathers show!

We miss seeing that darling face of yours!

Heathers TV Show Has Landed At Bravo!

The sequel that Winona Ryder was hoping for may be dead in the water, but the spirit of her 1988 teen comedy classic will live on through an entirely new generation of fans!

We heard a while back that a script for a television adaptation of the movie was floating around Hollywood and now Bravo has confirmed they have decided to bring it to life!

As part of the reality network's plan to start producing scripted "TV that pushes boundaries conceptually and thematically while still telling a fun story," the show follows

Winona Ryder Has Disappointing News About Heathers Sequel!

winona-ryder-not-sure-whats-happening-with-sequel-to-heathers

No! This NEEDS to happen!

Back in 2009, there were rumblings of a proposed sequel to the '80s cult classic Heathers coming to fruition, with original stars Winona Ryder and Christian Slater both on board to reprise their roles as the rebellious Veronica and J.D., as well as original writer Dan Waters and director Michael Lehmann!

However, when recently asked about film's current state of development, Ryder revealed that plans have stalled!

She explains:

"There was an idea, and I was sort of like on their back about like, 'We've gotta do it because, you know, Heathers exist outside of high school.' And there was this whole idea that Dan [Waters], you know, came up with with some little additions from me. At one point, I really wanted it to happen and was trying to get everyone riled up. But last I heard, who knows? I'm like, 'We should do this.' But everyone's doing their things right now. It's nice when people bring that up because I'm so proud of that movie, and I love when people come up and ask if there's going to be a sequel. It means it's still in their consciousness."

Um. HELL YES, it's still in our consciousness, bb!

Nothing has even COME CLOSE to comparing to the greatness - and bite - of that movie (No offense, Mean Girls)!

We seriously hope that they don't let this idea slip through the cracks!

C'mon guys, get everyone back on board! We bet Shannen would be down, too!

What do U think?? Would U like to see a sequel to Heathers?
