THE STORY: Rulers of their elite Manhattan prep school, Sebastian and Kathryn have placed a mischievous bet: Can Sebastian successfully deflower the innocent Annette Hargrove, the headmaster’s daughter? As their vengeful crusade wreaks havoc on the students at Manchester Prep, the two devilish step-siblings become entangled in their own web of deception and unexpected romance in this raucous jukebox throwback.
“The youthful exuberance and angst captured in [CRUEL INTENTIONS] creates the perfect ambience for this nostalgic, sex-fueled romp through the ’90s. …Each of the songs delights in their own ways, with most bringing smiles to the face as toes tap and your head bops. …it’s just so devilishly entertaining that it’s impossible not to love it.” —BroadwayWorld.

“…one couldn’t ask for much more in the way of millennial nostalgia. This show is stupid good fun.” —TheaterMania.

“There is only one important question with shows like this—is it funny? And the answer is yes, actually, surprisingly so. …deftly toned—decadent enough to feel that way but sufficiently wry and smart not to be offensive. It helps that all the female characters in the show outwit the far dumber men… So. No cruel intentions, really. Merely a fun parody of a long-gone era, resurrected for just long enough.” —Chicago Tribune.
