Cruel Intentions musical tickets – the iconic film with a seductively good ‘90s soundtrack

A web of lies and manipulation in a Manhattan high school unravels on stage to the beats of iconic 90s hits from Britney, R.E.M., The Verve, Christina Aguilera and many more in the Cruel Intentions musical. From the producers of Heathers the Musical, the teen movie about siblings who engage in a twisted sexual bet is now a sassy, sexy, sultry musical… finally arriving arriving in London! This “deliciously dark romp” (Edinburgh Guide) has already seduced audiences in Edinburgh and NYC, so if you’re tempted, book now for its run at The Other Palace.

Step-siblings Sebastian Valmont and Kathryn Merteuil are a dangerous combination of beautiful, bored and cruel, and they have set a bet: Sebastian must seduce their headmaster’s virtuous daughter Annette. Together, they weave a web of secrets, temptation and manipulation – and anyone who gets in their way will be destroyed. But what they haven’t bet on is unexpected romance and its explosive consequences…

Based on the 1999 film starring Sarah Michelle Gellar, Reese Witherspoon, Ryan Phillippe and Selma Blair, the Cruel Intentions musical is a wild romp packed with some of the biggest songs from the 90s. As Sebastian and Kathryn’s diabolical plan gets underway, every twist and turn is soundtracked by hits including “Losing My Religion”, “Torn”, “Bittersweet Symphony” and “No Scrubs”. 

The show was created by Jordan Ross, Lindsey Rosin and Roger Kumble and directed by Jonathan O’Boyle (The Last Five Years).
