(AP) Before there was "Mean Girls," there was "Heathers." Now that dark comedy is ready to bully its way into New York as a musical.


The 1988 film starring Winona Ryder, Shannen Doherty and Christian Slater has been turned into a show by Tony Award nominee Laurence O'Keefe and Emmy Award winner Kevin Murphy.


It starts performances off-Broadway in March at New World Stages after a stint in Los Angeles this year. Andy Fickman directs.


It tells the story of a high school misfit in Ohio who teams up with her boyfriend to kill her mean but popular classmates most called Heather and make it look like suicide.


O'Keefe wrote the music and lyrics to the Broadway show "Legally Blonde" and Kevin Murphy penned the lyrics to "Reefer Madness."
