Performances of Cruel Intentions: The Musical will kick off November 17 at (le) Poisson Rouge, marking the show’s official return after a sold-out pop-up run at the venue earlier this year. A hybrid of a rock concert mixed with a musical, the show features immersive staging and many of the songs that made the film so iconic.
In the video above, watch the company offer a sneak peek at the show’s closing number (The Verve’s “Bitter Sweet Symphony”).
Below, Lauren Zakrin, who plays Kathryn, and Constantine Rousouli, who plays Sebastian, perform Christina Aguilera’s “Genie in a Bottle:”
The company also performed Placebo's “Every You Every Me,” watch it below:
