"Rowdy guilty-pleasure musical that opened at New World Stages on Monday night. This is a show that turns an Ohio senior class in-crowd into a lineup of piñatas, waiting to be busted open. And when I say busted open, I am not speaking metaphorically."
Ben Brantley for New York Times
"A fun and satisfying Off-Broadway treat."
Joe Dziemianowicz for New York Daily News
"Ingenious, very funny “Heathers: The Musical,” which pulls off wonders on a shoestring."
Elisabeth Vincentelli for New York Post
"The show is about 20 minutes too long, but, over all, it's breezy entertainment. Weed [Barrett Wilbert Weed], though, is the big find here. She's a performer to watch."
Robert Feldberg for The Record
"This is a goofy show more dependent on inbuilt affection for the movie than on finessed execution. If it blunts the fangs of its inspiration, it at least salutes a late-'80s pop-cultural touchstone with the affection it deserves."
David Rooney for The Hollywood Reporter
"Someone of the current generation should shake a leg and transfer this winner to Broadway."
Marilyn Stasio for Variety
