Watch: Candy Store from Heathers: The Musical

Same spiel. It’s production week on the show I’ve been music directing since December. I’m tired. My schedule is packed. I’m curating content this week.

The Heathers musical has finally arrived in NYC and the response has been decidedly mixed. I feel that the song “Candy Store” explains the divided opinions well. It’s packed with dialogue and attitude straight from the film, but also has a very bubblegum pop feel that is at odds with the dark material. Whatever. Everything I’ve seen and heard is so very.
