Color Me Stoked! The first single from Heathers the Musical cast album has been released today!
I Say No – the first single from the upcoming album Heathers the Musical – Original West End Cast Recording, for digital download and streaming now.
The show’s London stars Carrie Hope Fletcher and Jamie Muscato – who played Veronica Sawyer and Jason “J.D.” Dean, the characters made famous by Winona Ryder and Christian Slater – are featured on the song and in the music video.
Based on last year’s hit West End production, this single continues an exciting journey which took Heathers from the 1988 cult classic film to a landmark New York stage production in 2014. That led to its premiere cast album, which became a viral hit and went on to become the best-selling non-Broadway American cast recording of the decade.
The full version of Heathers the Musical – Original West End Cast Recording will be released on Friday 1st March.
Kevin Murphy and Laurence O’Keefe told Encore Radio:
“‘I Say No – is an emancipation anthem in which Veronica cuts ties with her homicidal boyfriend. Andrew Lloyd Webber, one of the show’s lead producers, suggested we give her an eleven o’clock number to establish her moral clarity by firmly articulating the idea that violence is never a solution to the injustices of high school.”
Heathers the Musical – based on one of the most iconic teen films of all time: Heathers, the 1988 cult classic – closed in November 2018 after a successful five-month run at Royal Haymarket Theatre, London.
