Cruel Intentions: The ’90s Musical Tickets
From the producers of smash-hit Heathers the Musical… A must-see experience in New York and Los Angeles and following a sold-out, critically-acclaimed production in the Assembly Palais du Variété spiegeltent at the 2019 Edinburgh Festival Fringe, Cruel Intentions: The ’90s Musical, finally hits London. Manipulative step-siblings Sebastian and Kathryn, flushed with their own sexual prowess, engage in a cruel bet: Kathryn goads Sebastian into attempting to seduce Annette, the headmaster’s virtuous daughter. Weaving a web of secrets and temptation, as the two set out to destroy an innocent girl — and anyone who gets in their way — they wreak havoc at their exclusive Manhattan high school, becoming entangled in their own web of deception and unexpected romance with explosive results... On the 25th anniversary of the hit film Cruel Intentions starring Reese Witherspoon, Ryan Phillippe, Sarah Michelle Gellar and Selma Blair and inspired by Les Liaisons Dangereuses, Cruel Intentions: The ‘90s Musical is a wild jukebox throwback laced with a soundtrack of the greatest ‘90s pop classics including The Verve ‘Bittersweet Symphony’, R.E.M. ‘Losing My Religion’, Natalie Imbruglia ‘Torn’, Ace of Base ‘I Saw the Sign’, Christina Aguilera ‘Genie in a Bottle’, TLC ‘No Scrubs’, Boyz II Men ‘I’ll Make Love to You’, *NSYNC ‘Bye Bye Bye’, Britney Spears ’Sometimes’ and many more.

Opening at the Other Palace this Thursday (11 January), the musical, jam-packed with 90s jams, is a surefire way to beat the January blues. Can’t wait to see the cast in the flesh?

Will Cruel Intentions slither into the West End or remain an item on your #WestEndWishList?
Nostalgia therapy is no doubt all the rage these days. You saw it on stage with last year's Heathers and you'll see it again this year with the new Max Martin musical, & Juliet, a fancy jukebox production packed with all your favourite retro hits from the past two decades. You see it on TV, like in Black Mirror's 'San Junipero' episode. You hear it in music: think Charli XCX and her recent jam with Troye Sivan, '1999', in which she sings "I just wanna go back, sing, "Hit me, baby, one more time."."
Well now fans of the decade that brought bubblegum pop and angsty alt-rock to the forefront can get just the blast to the past they've been looking for with Cruel Intentions: The '90s Musical. The provocative show based on the award-winning film of the same name first premiered in Los Angeles before later transferring to the Poisson Rouge Nightclub Off-Broadway in 2017. It is now set to head to the Edinburgh Festival Fringe this August for its long-awaited UK premiere. If all goes well for the production next month, there's a high chance West End audiences may see it grace the London stage in 2020.
