The musical is described as "a darkly comedic, stylish girl clique musical with the mythic story of Courtney 'Satan in heels' Shayne and her minions who play a nasty birthday prank on their picture perfect bestie. It wasn't their fault the jawbreaker got stuck in her throat...or was it?"

Jawbreaker is often compared to the 1988 dark comedy "Heathers," which is also getting the musical treatment by Legally Blonde composer Laurence O'Keefe, Andy Fickman and Kevin Murphy.
