Andy Fickman's production of Heathers had a gala performance at the Other Palace last night so we popped along to chat with the cast and guests to get the lowdown on the newest musical to hit London.

Starring Carrie Hope Fletcher as Veronica Sawyer, Jamie Muscato as Jason Dean and Jodie Steele, Sophie Isaacs and T'Shan Williams as the titular Heathers, the musical is about a teenage misfit who gets taken under the wings of three beautiful people called the Heathers.

It had a work-in-progress performance in the studio at the Other Palace last year, and now plays the main space. It is based on the 1988 cult movie that starred Winona Ryder and Christian Slater.

The new production has direction from Andy Fickman, choreography by Gary Lloyd, design by David Shields, lighting by Ben Cracknell, sound by Dan Samson and casting by Will Burton.
