I enjoyed this production but have also seen The Heathers off broadway in New York (a few years ago) and preferred that rendition in some respects. Whilst I support having a cast which is inclusive of all body types, the three heathers in the other production were more aesthetically "perfect", and I think this makes more sense, given the play is set in the late 80s, when waif models were coming into fashion. The actress who played Veronica, in the New York production, was also ridiculously skinny, so the line "you could stand to lose a few pounds" in Beautiful made better sense as a commentary on the ridiculous standards of beauty set by society and upheld within the school by the three popular "mean girls". I think this helped further the overall message of the musical. I also would have changed the orange bow in the hair of one of the cast members, as it stood out in UV lights, drawing attention away from a lead singer. I may be incorrect, but I think the line "two stray laces" was changed to "two strong laces" in the song "My Dead Gay Son" in this production. I really appreciated this change as it agrees with the father's message, supporting the LGBTQ+ community. I must also mention that the actor who played Jason Dean in this production gave an outstanding and memorable performance. I was really impressed by his expression of the character and would definitely visit any play or musical he takes part in in the future.
