About Cruel Intentions: The '90s Musical

If you loved the 1999 dark teen film Cruel Intentions, or just want to escape into an ultra-stylish version of upper-class New York society, filled with fabulous pop songs and stinging wit, don’t miss the strictly limited run of Cruel Intentions: the ‘90s Musical. Book Cruel Intentions: the ‘90s Musical tickets on London Theatre now.

From the same producers as Heathers the Musical – and even more outrageous – the story is adapted for the stage by original writer/director Roger Kumble. Based on Pierre Choderlos de Laclos’s 1782 novel Les Liaisons dangereuses, dastardly step-siblings Kathryn and Sebastian manipulate all the goings-on at their Manhattan private school, including the question of who sleeps with who. Innocent new girl Cecile and the headmaster’s prim and proper daughter Annette are among their conquests – and their relationship with each other threatens to bust the ultimate taboo.

The show was first performed in Los Angeles in 2015 and has played Off Broadway and on tour, selling out and receiving rave reviews. Jonathan O’Boyle’s production was first presented at the Edinburgh Fringe and in Paris before arriving at The Other Palace, which has presented many of London’s most exciting new musicals.

London Theatre’s four-star review commented that “some elements are actually ahead of their time, like Kathryn calling out society’s gendered double standards” and “the guilty-pleasure retread becomes an absolute blast. This school reunion is well worth the trip”.

The score includes songs by Britney Spears, Christina Aguilera, TLC, NSYC, Natalie Imbruglia, and The Verve. With stylish staging and dazzling performances from the young cast putting their own twists on the roles created by Sarah Michelle Gellar, Ryan Phillippe, Reese Witherspoon, and Selma Blair, it’s a mordantly hilarious look at the darker side of humanity – a high school musical with a fiendish twist!
