Cruel Intentions

A must-see experience in New York and Los Angeles and following a sold-out, critically acclaimed production in the Assembly Palais du Variété spiegeltent at the 2019 Edinburgh Festival Fringe, Cruel Intentions: The ’90s Musical, from the producers of smash hit Heathers the Musical, finally arrives in London.

Step-siblings Sebastian Valmont and Kathryn Merteuil, manipulative monsters flushed with their own sexual prowess, engage in a cruel bet: Kathryn goads Sebastian into attempting to seduce Annette Hargrove, the headmaster’s virtuous daughter.

Weaving a web of secrets and temptation, as the two set out to destroy an innocent girl — and anyone who gets in their way — their vengeful crusade wreaks havoc on the students at their exclusive Manhattan high school and the diabolical duo become entangled in their own web of deception and unexpected romance, with explosive results…

Celebrating the 25th anniversary of the hit film Cruel Intentions starring Reese Witherspoon, Ryan Phillippe, Sarah Michelle Gellar and Selma Blair and inspired by Les Liaisons DangereusesCruel Intentions: The ‘90s Musical is a wild nostalgic throwback laced with a soundtrack of the greatest ‘90s pop classics including Losing My Religion, Torn, The Sign, No Scrubs, Genie in a Bottle, I’ll Make Love To You, Bye Bye Bye, Sometimes and, of course, Bittersweet Symphony.
