The New York pop-up engagement of Cruel Intentions: The Musical kicks off February 11 at (Le) Poisson Rouge, starring Jennifer Damiano (American Psycho, Next to Normal) as Kathryn, Constantine Rousouli (Wicked, Ghost) as Sebastian, and Natalie Hall (True Blood, All My Children) as Annette.

Following two sold-out engagements in Los Angeles, Cruel Intentions: The Musical makes its New York debut for three performances only—through February 14. After selling out, producers announced additional seats February 10.

The New York cast also features Janel Parrish (Pretty Little Liars) as Cecile, Alex Boniello (Spring Awakening) as Blaine, Jenn Harris (Silence! The Musical; Gayby) as Mrs. Caldwell, Jared Dixon (Shades of Blue) as Ronald, and Brian Muller (The Good Wife) as Greg. Rousouli, Parrish, and Muller previously starred in the L.A. run.

Adpated from Roger Kumble’s 1999 thriller of the same name, Cruel Intentions: The Musical is created by Jordan Ross and Lindsey Rosin, and features 90s hits as well as songs from the cult film’s soundtrack. The show features immersive stage direction by Rosin, with music direction and arrangements by Zach Spound.

The Cruel Intentions film starred Sarah Michelle Gellar and Ryan Phillippe as step siblings who play the ultimate game of seduction and revenge. The story is based on the 1782 French novel by Pierre Choderlos de Laclos, Les Liaisons Dangereuses, recently seen on Broadway in Christopher Hampton’s stage adaptation.

Cruel Intentions: The Musical is produced by Sucker Love Productions with executive producer Eva Price.
