WHAT IS IT ABOUT?
Cruel Intentions: The Musical pulls you into the manipulative world of Manhattan's most dangerous liaisons: Sebastian Valmont and Kathryn Merteuil. Seduced by revenge and fueled by passion, the two diabolically charming step-siblings place a bet on whether or not Sebastian can deflower their incoming headmaster's daughter. As the two set out to destroy the innocent girl — and anyone who gets in their way — they find themselves entangled in a web of secrets, temptation, and the cruelest game of all: love.
Based on the classic French novel Les Liaisons Dangereuses and perhaps the sexiest teen drama of all time, this new musical is a full-on 1990s throwback to when email was for "geeks and pedophiles" and rosaries were more than a fashion statement. Cruel Intentions: The Musical features favorite nostalgia-inducing hits like "Lovefool," "Just a Girl," "Only Happy When It Rains," and of course, "Bittersweet Symphony."
