Barrett Wilbert Weed ’11 heads back to school in new “Heathers” musical

The music theatre alumna stars in the Los Angeles world-premiere of “Heathers The Musical”.

Based on the iconic 1988 dark comedy, “Heathers” tells the story of a deadly and domineering clique of high school girls and the extent they’ll go to be leader of the school. The musical features music by Laurence O’Keefe, a Tony award-nominee for “Legally Blonde”.

Weed will star as Veronica, the role that launched Winona Ryder’s career in the film. In just a little over two years, Weed has found tremendous success as an understudy in the Broadway production of “Lysistrata Jones” and starring as Nadia in the acclaimed Off-Broadway production of “bare”.

The premiere runs September 21 – October 6 at the Hudson Backstage Theatre in Los Angeles.
