Cruel Intentions: The 90’s Musical

Created by Jordan Ross, Lindsey Rosin, and Roger Kumble Based on the film by Roger Kumble
Arrangements by Zach Spound

A co-production with Uptown Players and Stage West Theatre

In an epic game of cat and mouse, two diabolically charming step-siblings place a bet, and vow to destroy anyone who gets in their way. Seduced by passion and revenge, this devious duo spins a web of dangerous liaisons, and they soon find themselves entangled in the cruelest game of all: love. Based on the cult classic film and featuring your favorite 90’s hits, this new jukebox musical is utterly intoxicating.
