Heathers the Musical

Inspired by the entertainment value of Rocky the Musical, I got tickets to the off-Broadway production of Heathers the Musical. I figured that no matter what it would have to be fun, even if not great theater. Well, I was wrong. It was a giant mess of schlock. I felt embarrassed for the performers, who seemed competent and talented. They just had to work with a big chaotic ridiculous joke of material. It was frenetic and unfunny. Shrill and flat at the same time. The music and lyrics were cringe-worthy.

It was so bad that we left after intermission!!! I don't think I've ever done that with live entertainment (just movies). I'm glad I didn't punish myself by staying for the whole thing.
