The live stream concert presentation of Cruel Intentions: The ‘90s Musical has extended its on demand availability through February 15 on Stellar. A virtual cast party, led by star Janel Parrish, will take place January 16 at 8 PM ET on Twitter.
The concert stars Parrish as Kathryn Merteuil, Constantine Rousouli as Sebastian Valmont, Carrie St. Louis as Annette Hargrove, Emma Hunton as Cecile Caldwell, Frankie Grande as Blaine Tuttle, Jenn Harris as Mrs. Bunny Caldwell, Brian Logan Dales as Greg McConnell and Israel Erron Ford as Ronald Clifford. All except Dales and Ford have appeared in previous stagings.
Cruel Intentions: The ‘90s Musical is created by Jordan Ross, Lindsey Rosin, and Roger Kumble, based on Kumble’s 1999 cult-hit film of the same name, produced by Neal Moritz. The jukebox score features songs by Goo Goo Dolls, No Doubt, R.E.M., Boyz II Men, Ace of Base, Jewel, ‘NSYNC, and more, including ‘Bittersweet Symphony” by The Verve and “Colorblind” by Counting Crows, two songs beloved by fans in the film version.
This concert, filmed in December at The Bourbon Room in Los Angeles, California, is directed by the musical’s original director Lindsey Rosin and Kenneth Ferrone, with camera direction by Jake Wilson. Music supervision, orchestrations, and arrangements are by Zach Spound with casting by Henry Russell Bergstein.
The show first debuted on the West Coast in 2015, followed by an encore engagement in 2016. In 2017, Cruel Intentions: The ‘90s Musical opened with a twice-extended Off-Broadway staging at (le) Poisson Rouge. A cast album from that production was released in 2019, followed by the launch of a national tour and a U.K. premiere. Later this year, the show will make its international debut in Australia, at Melbourne's Athenaeum Theatre.
