Why See Cruel Intentions?
How Can Someone So Charming Be So Manipulative?
Based on the classic French novel, Les Liaisons Dangereuses and the hit 1999 film, this new musical is a 90's throwback - including the nostalgic hits from the original soundtrack "Love Fool", "Just A Girl", and of course "Bittersweet Symphony" it's an intoxicating musical that's intentionally cruel. Patricia Richardson (of TV's Home Improvement) will take on the role of Mrs. Caldwell with Lauren Zakrin as Kathryn and Constantine Rousouli as Sebastian.
What is Cruel Intentions about?
Cruel Intentions: The Musical leads you into the scheming world of Manhattans most treacherous liasons. Sebastian Valmont and Kathryn Marteuil are step-siblings that are seduced by revenge and led by passion. Their upcoming headmaster's daughter Annette is unbeknown 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 on staying pure could be the undoing of her. The two step-siblings set out to destroy her purity - and anyone who get's 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?
