I myself have fallen down the “heathers videos on YouTube” rabbit hole sooo many times. But if for some reason you haven’t (or you’re new to the musical) these are my top 13 favorite videos on the tube that feature heathers. Some of these are OBC and some are other productions. I’ve literally probably watched all these videos like 5 times in their entirety. Enjoy.
Renée Elise Goldsberry:
When you chew mint gum and then drink water right afterwards so that your whole mouth is cold but it's the most exhilarating feeling you have ever experienced in your life and you get goosebumps just from that one sip of water and that minty freshness
A cinnamon bun that is so sweet, so pure, so perfect, that you almost don't want to eat it but you do, and after you finish it you feel so content you just want to curl into a ball and fall asleep
The feeling when you're listening to a fantastic song and the sound travels from one earbud to the other
When your head's in someone's lap and they are playing with your hair and you're outside and you look up at the night sky and see all of the stars and life is good
That one swan song in every Broadway show that has the audience on its feet roaring with applause and crying and throwing roses on the stage when it finishes
That moment before a concert is about to start and all the lights go off and everyone starts screaming and your stomach drops and you feel like you're going to explode from the excitement
A dress that is so beautiful and it's the perfect length and the perfect color and you honestly feel like royalty just by LOOKING at it
When you were little and you would get sick and your mom would bring you chicken noodle soup and tuck you in and sing you to sleep while stroking your forehead.
That one perfume that smells SO GOOD and you have to stop yourself from spraying it all over yourself
Cartwheeling through a meadow of flowers while simultaneously rifting and singing the highest notes you possibly can
That one part in The Odd Life of Timothy Green where he is absorbing the light because of photosynthesis and he just closes his eyes and spreads his arms and basks in the glory
Barrett Wilbert Weed:
When you're at a party and your jam comes on and you and your friends kill it with your dance routine
A carnival at night with all of the bright lights on and you're sitting at the top of the Ferris Wheel eating cotton candy
Driving really fast and the wind is whipping your hair back and your radio's blasting music and you feel like you're flying.
Jessica Keenan Wynn:
When you make a sassy comeback and get complimented for it and you feel like a boss because you slayed everyone (yet again)
Deep inside of everyone / There’s a hot ball of shame / Guilt, regret, anxiety / Fears we dare not name / But, if we show the ugly parts / That we hide away / They turn out to be beautiful / By the light of day /
