Composer Laurence O’Keefe is the genius behind those oh-so-very cast recordings Bat Boy and Legally Blonde, and writer Kevin Murphy gave us Reefer Madness and Desperate Housewives; so it should be obvi. that when these two came together to work on adapting the dark, ‘80s cult hit Heathers, the results would be out of this world. Below, BroadwayBox enlists some of our favorite, fierce Heather-types to help us as we react to listening to the Heathers Original Cast Recording.

1. Beautiful (Company)

Heathers- Track 1

This is an epic opening number! You are immediately thrust into this world.

2. Candy Store (Jessica Keenan Wynn, Alice Lee & Elle McLemore)

Heathers- Track 4

Ryan McCartan is dreamy and he can sing. *Sigh*
