"Everybody loves me and twenty years later I intend to keep it that way, with the support of the exquisite Cruel Intentions Musical and soundtrack. Not that I need support. I don't, because I'm fabulous," says Sarah Michelle Gellar.
Original film director Roger Kumble adds, "Never in my darkest fantasies would I believe twenty years later, my movie about a pair of hedonistic Manhattan step-siblings would turn into a musical. An amazing musical that even people who hate musicals would love, complete with a soundtrack loaded with the greatest 90s guilty pleasure songs."
Set to the greatest pop and rock hits of the '90s, CRUEL INTENTIONS THE 90S MUSICAL is an exhilarating and deceptively funny musical that pulls you into the manipulative world of Manhattan's most dangerous liaisons: Sebastian Valmont and Kathryn Merteuil. Seduced by revenge and fueled by passion, the two diabolically charming step-siblings place a bet on whether or not Sebastian can deflower their incoming headmaster's daughter, Annette Hargrove. As the two set out to destroy the innocent girl - and anyone who gets in their way - they find themselves entangled in a web of secrets, temptation, and the cruelest game of all: love. Following its sold-out, critically acclaimed and twice-extended run at New York City's (Le) Poission Rouge, CRUEL INTENTIONS THE 90S MUSICAL will embark on national tour beginning next year. Audience members will experience the intoxicating story full of hilarity and heart, set to the greatest throwback hits of the decade by such artists as Goo Goo Dolls, No Doubt, R.E.M., Ace of Base, Jewel, 'NSYNC and more - in addition to songs from the film's iconic soundtrack such as "Bittersweet Symphony" by The Verve and "Colorblind" by Counting Crows.
Grammy-winning producer Stewart Lerman captured the dynamic arrangements from the Off-Broadway production, in his studio outside New York City in August this year. Featuring the stellar talents of Carrie St. Louis, Constantine Rousouli and Alex Boniello alongside Patricia Richardson, the album will contain a collection of lively tracks from CRUEL INTENTIONS THE 90S MUSICAL including 'Losing My Religion' 'Bye Bye Bye' and a unique take on 'No Scrubs' that is not to be missed. Preorder and complete track listing to be announced soon.
"We are honored to celebrate this exciting anniversary and immortalize the NY cast's voices with this album. And we could not be more excited to partner with ABKCO to release this cast recording," says Producer Eva Price. "Film and musical fans alike will be thrilled to listen to our amazing Off-Broadway company before seeing the show live at venues across the country. It will be 'Happy Hunting' across America in 2019!"
