Why See Cruel Intentions?
How Can Someone So Charming Be So Manipulative?
Extended by popular demand - Now showing to May 19th!
Cruel Intentions: The '90s Musical is here! Based on the classic French novel, Les Liaisons Dangereuses, and the hit 1999 film, this new musical is a '90s throwback, including the nostalgic hits from the original soundtrack like "Love Fool," "Just A Girl," and, of course, "Bittersweet Symphony." It's an intoxicating musical that's intentionally cruel.
What is Cruel Intentions about?
Cruel Intentions leads you into the scheming world of Manhattan's most treacherous liaisons. Sebastian Valmont and Kathryn Marteuil are step-siblings seduced by revenge and led by passion. Their new headmaster's daughter Annette is unknown to her surroundings when she becomes a pawn in Sebastian and Kathryn's deliciously diabolical wager of sexual conquest, writing an article about how she intends to stay pure could be the undoing of her. The two step-siblings set out to destroy her purity - and anyone who gets in their way. They find themselves tangled in temptation, secrets, and worst of all love.
So tell me, are you in... or are you out?
