It’s hard to overstate how beloved the 1988 black comedy Heathers is to adults of a certain age. Keep your Mean Girls, millennials; the foul-mouthed broads of Westerberg High could swear a circle around your precious Regina George. The cult classic was adapted into an Off-Broadway musical a few years ago, and opens at the Alexis and Jim Pugh Theater this weekend. “Social media sensation” Thomas Sanders, who makes 6-second musicals and skits on his popular Vine channel, gets top billing in the role of JD, the broody new kid who opens up disgruntled popular girl Veronica’s eyes to the joys of nonconformism and murder. Their love is God; let’s go get a slushie.

Opens 7:30 p.m. Thursday, Aug. 13 | through Aug. 23 | Dr. Phillips Center for the Performing Arts, 445 S. Magnolia Ave. | 844-513-2014 | | $31.71-$58.33
