Mark Shenton views the week of news, openings & upcoming awards… in the West End, Broadway & beyond.

Following a sold-out run at The Other Palace earlier this year, there’s been a lot of hype surrounding Heathers the Musical, with a strong fandom out in force and social media buzzing with (mostly) glowing comments.
News, reviews, controversies and commentary from the West End and Broadway, including the first West End job share and the re-opening of the Kiln Theatre (formerly the Tricycle).
You thought there were enough school-themed musicals? What with Bring it On, School of Rock and our own dear cross-dressing Jamie…? Make room, here comes Heathers.
The Other Palace has announced changes to its management team and programming direction, including the departure of artistic director Paul Taylor Mills and the re-introduction of plays to its schedule. Previously the St James Theatre, the west London venue was rebranded and relaunched as a musicals-only house last February.
Joining the previously announced Carrie Hope Fletcher, playing Veronica Sawyer in the Uk premiere of Heathers – The Musical at The Other Palace (9 June to 4 August 2018) are Jodie Steele (Chandler), Sophie Isaacs (McNamara) and T’Shan Williams (Duke) – The Heathers, with Jamie Muscato playing the mysterious teen rebel Jason Dean (JD).
A bevy of young and exciting talents whip the crowd into a frenzy in the welcome Melbourne premiere season of Heathers the Musical.
