Cruel Intentions: The Musical, the stage adaptation of Roger Kumble's 1999 cult hit film, created by Jordan Ross, Lindsey Rosin, and Roger Kumble, will return to New York for a limited engagement at (Le) Poisson Rouge beginning November 17. The production celebrates its official opening night on December 11 and will play through January 29.

Set to the greatest pop and rock hits of the '90s and songs from the film's iconic soundtrack, Cruel Intentions: The Musical will feature immersive stage direction by Lindsey Rosin and choreography by Jennifer Weber, with music direction and arrangements by Zach Spound.

It starred Sarah Michelle Gellar, Ryan Phillippe, Reese Witherspoon, Selma Blair, Joshua Jackson, Eric Mabius, Sean Patrick Thomas, and Christine Baranski.
