The New York premiere of Cruel Intentions: The Musical, a pop-up engagement at (Le) Poisson Rouge, has found its complete cast. Jennifer Damiano (American Psycho, Next to Normal) will star as Kathryn, Constantine Rousouli (Wicked, Ghost) will be Sebastian, and Natalie Hall (True Blood, All My Children) will take on the role of Annette.
Following two sold-out engagements in Los Angeles, Cruel Intentions: The Musical is making its New York debut for three performances only: February 11, 13, and 14. The New York cast will also feature 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.
Tickets are $39-$59 and are now on sale at lpr.com, or can be purchased in person at the (Le) Poisson Rouge box office during opening hours.
