Before there was Mean Girls there was Heathers, the deliciously dark '80s comedy starring Winona Ryder as a high school girl who joins forces with a hot rebel (Christian Slater) to take on a trio of popular divas -- all named Heather. Now the cult classic film hits the off-Broadway stage as a live musical featuring all your favorite lines from the movie, plus music and lyrics by the composers behind Legally Blonde and Reefer Madness. Westerberg High is terrorized by a shoulder-padded, scrunchie-wearing trio of Heathers -- the hottest and cruelest girls in all of Ohio. But misfit Veronica Sawyer rejects their evil regime for a new boyfriend, the sexy stranger J.D., who plans to put the Heathers in their rightful place -- six feet under. Journey back to high school and delight in youthful romance, shameless laughter, and the surprising satisfaction of outrageous revenge. Learn More

Where should I begin?!!! Had no idea what really to expect with this show and I was pleasantly surprised! It was the BEST off Broadway show I've ever seen. It was funny and the music was awesome. Constantine and the rest of the cast "ROCKED" the house. It was entertaining from start to end. If you are a fan of the 80'sthen this is a show you must see!!!! HIGHLY RECOMMEND IT.
I am actually thinking of going and see it again :)
Quotes & Highlights
- The show's Los Angeles run was a hit on Goldstar, winning the <a target="_blank" href="https://www.goldstar.com/events/los-angeles-ca/rock-of-ages.html">Roar of the Crowd</a> award.
Rock of Ages is a rock musical set in Hollywood in 1986, when it was all about big chords, big dreams and…big hair! It blends the traditions of musical theater with the joy, energy and passion of a rock concert, and was inspired by the rising nostalgia for the 1980s, its timeless music and the classic “hair bands” whose sonic power filled the airwaves and the clubs on L.A.’s Sunset Strip. The show explores the pursuit of dreams: some come true, some are cut short and some change along the way. No matter what, the persistence of the human heart is what matters…so "Don’t Stop Believing!"
Songs in the show include:
- "We Built This City" - Starship
- "Too Much Time on My Hands" - Styx
