Westerberg High has some new faces you better look out for. Dave Thomas Brown and Kristolyn Lloyd join the cast of the hit off-Broadway musical Heathers at New World Stages on June 9. Brown steps in as J.D., a role originated by Ryan McCartan, and Kristolyn Lloyd assumes the role of Heather Duke, replacing Alice Lee.
Brown’s stage credits include Spring Awakening and Shakespeare’s R&J. Lloyd originated the role of Heather Duke in Heathers: The Musical at The Hudson Theatre in Los Angeles. Additional theater credits include Witness Uganda, Hairspray and Rent. She plays the recurring part of Dayzee Leigh Forrester on CBS’ The Bold and the Beautiful.
Based on the 1988 cult classic film, Heathers features music, lyrics and a book by Laurence O’Keefe and Kevin Murphy. The tuner follows Veronica Sawyer, a high school outsider who suddenly finds herself part of a pack of the hottest and cruelest girls in all of Ohio: Heather, Heather and Heather. Veronica rejects their evil regime for a new boyfriend, the dark sexy stranger J.D., who plans to put the Heathers in their place—six feet under.
Under the direction of Andy Fickman, the cast of Heathers also includes Barrett Wilbert Weed, Elle McLemore, Jessica Keenan Wynn, Katie Ladner, Jon Eidson, Evan Todd, Tony winner Anthony Crivello, Dan Cooney, Dan Domenech, Michelle Duffy, Cait Fairbanks, Rachel Flynn, Molly Hager, Charissa Hogeland, AJ Meijer, Matthew Schatz, Dan Domenech and Dustin Sullivan.
