‘Clueless, the Musical’ Can’t Capture the Movie’s Bite Off-Broadway: REVIEW

Amy Heckerling balanced satire on a razor-sharp edge in her 1995 film Clueless. The absurdity of its Beverly Hills excess is signaled from the very first line (“So you’re probably going, ‘Is this like a Noxzema commercial or what?’”), even while its warm-hearted characters — and especially Cher, played by Alicia Silverstone — easily win our sympathies.

Clueless was a hit because we all wanted to be the cool kids — and have permission to hate them just a little bit, too.
