'Heathers: The Musical'

From the "Heathers: The Musical" deal description:

Cult-classic teen-murder comedy becomes a New York Times–lauded, pitch-black stage show, complete with perky songs. New girl Veronica Sawyer joins the titular high-school clique, but soon discovers murdering the Heathers is more fun than playing croquet with them and mocking Martha “Dumptruck” Dunnstock. Driving her down this path is the leather-jacket-wearing bad boy J.D. Dean, whose too-cool attitude just might be masking a psychopathic streak.

When: Thursday, Nov. 8, 8 p.m.
Where: OB Playhouse, 4944 Newport Ave., Point Loma Peninsula
Price: $24 (25% off regular price); one other option available
