From the chic 90s outfits to the unforgettable cast featuring a young Reese Witherspoon and Sarah Michelle Gellar, Cruel Intentions is a film that etched its place in the annals of iconic 90s pop culture. Inspired by the French novel Les Liasions Dangereuses, this movie took everyone on a rollercoaster ride of backstabbing scandal that made it the precursor to modern teen dramas like Gossip Girl

But here’s some exciting news for fans of the film. Cruel Intentions is making its way to the West End as a new musical, promising a whirlwind of nostalgia and chart-topping hits. Set to grace the London stage at The Other Palace Theatre from 11 January to 14 April, this musical promises to be the ultimate blast from the past.

You’re probably wondering what tunes will be gracing this throwback production.

It’s like all your favourite mixtape hits come to life in one unforgettable performance.

Now Cruel Intentions: The ’90s Musical isn’t a newcomer to the stage. It’s already had successful runs on Broadway and at the Edinburgh Fringe. The cast for the upcoming London production hasn’t been unveiled yet, but with the film’s director, Roger Kumble, expressing his excitement, you can bet this is going to be one star-studded affair. He says that “even people who hate musicals will love it”.
