The company recorded the album in August 2018.
The March physical release of the album will mark the 20th anniversary of the film on which the musical is based. "Everybody loves me and 20 years later I intend to keep it that way, with the support of the exquisite Cruel Intentions musical and soundtrack," shares original film star Sarah Michelle Gellar in press notes. "Not that I need support. I don't, because I'm fabulous."
Created by Jordan Ross, Lindsey Rosin, and the original film's screenwriter and director Roger Kumble, Cruel Intentions: The '90s Musical updates Pierre Choderlos de Laclos' 1792 French novel Les Liaisons Dangereuses to the world of 1990s Manhattan prep schools. The musical adaptation, which features a score made up of '90s pop hits, premiered in Los Angeles in 2015 before coming to Manhattan's (le) Poisson Rouge in 2017.
The album's release will be followed by the launch of a national tour, set to play engagements in New York, Illinois, Connecticut, Georgia, Florida, and more. To see the full touring schedule, click here.
