The show's London stars Carrie Hope Fletcher and Jamie Muscato - who played Veronica Sawyer and Jason "J.D." Dean, the characters made famous by Winona Ryder and Christian Slater - are featured on the song and in the music video. Writers Kevin Murphy andLaurence O'Keefe joined forces with producer Michael Croiter (Heathers: The Musical (World Premiere Cast Recording), Matilda,Groundhog Day) at Livingston Studio and Abbey Road Studios to recreate the musical performance.
Kevin Murphy and Laurence O'Keefe said, "We love when new artists teach us brand new things about songs, we thought we knew. Jamie and Carrie bring enormous empathy and warmth to "Seventeen," which is a song about hope. This may be our favourite track on the new album."
Heathers the Musical - based on one of the most iconic teen films of all time: Heathers, the 1988 cult classic - closed in November 2018 after a successful five-month run at Royal Haymarket Theatre, London. The hit musical adaptation by the award-winning writing team Laurence O'Keefe (Legally Blonde, Bat Boy) and Kevin Murphy (Reefer Madness, "Desperate Housewives") has enjoyed successful runs in Los Angeles and New York, and finally arrived in the UK for its European premiere in June 2018, following a rapturous response to its 2017 workshop at The Other Palace. The production moved to the Theatre Royal Haymarket for a West End run in Autumn 2018.
