With its brilliant, regional premiere production of “Heathers: The Musical,” the Studio Theater in the rear of the Beck Center for the Arts has most assuredly established itself as the go-to performance space for dark, delightfully deranged musicals.  Audiences should forever expect irony, an adrenaline rush and a splash zone when entering the intimate performance space.  And be thoroughly entertained by the time they leave.

Heathers the musical continues the Beck trend of staging dynamic, small, cult appealing shows (e.g., Evil Dead, Reefer Madness, and Bloody Bloody Andrew Jackson) in its Studio Theatre.  With dynamic choreography, a well-played rock-infused-with-ballads score, and enough blood, gore and simulated sex to grab and hold an audience, Heathers should be awarded with a sold out run!

For those who love a little titillation in their theater excursions, The Beck Center’s “Heathers: The Musical” nicely balances the sex, mayhem and murder with comedy and sprightly musical numbers for a surprisingly enjoyable evening.

The Beck Center continues to reflect the current trends in musical theater with this production of "Heathers". Outrageous is a word that comes to mind to describe the obsessions of teenagers that can drive them to murder. This critic chuckled often enough to feel guilty at this brash show. Director, choreographer and designer have brought their "A" game to the production.
