Everybody Sing Along: What's Your Damage Heather???

Good news for all of you die-hard Heathers fans!
The 1988 dark comedy is being turned into a musical!!!!!
The production is being developed by the director of Race to Witch Mountain, Andy Fickman.
Fickman and crew have even been doing readings this week to test it all out. And, in the readings, Veronica Mars star Kristen Bell played the lead with Christian Campbell as J.D.
As for Denise Di Novi, who produced the movie, she will be executive producing the musical.
And in keeping with the original feeling of the movie, Fickman also spoke with the movie’s writer, Dan Waters, in order to “to make sure we were on the same page.”
Fickman added, “He understood that our goals were to be creatively attuned to his original work.”
The show should be ready for a full regional production by 2010, then followed by a Broadway run.
