An all-star cast has been announced for the UK premiere of hit US musical Cruel Intentions: The ’90s Musical, being produced at the Edinburgh Fringe by the team behind West End smash, Heathers The Musical.
Fuelled by passion and seduced by revenge, gorgeous, glamorous, hedonistic Manhattan step-siblings Sebastian Valmont and Kathryn Merteuil bet on destroying an innocent girl. The show is set to a pumping beat of ‘90s pop classics – all performed live – including Natalie Imbruglia’s ‘Torn’, ‘I Saw the Sign’ by Ace of Base, Boyz II Men’s ‘I’ll Make Love to You’, *NSYNC’s ‘Bye Bye Bye’, Britney Spears’ ’Sometimes’, R.E.M’s ‘Losing My Religion’, ‘Bittersweet Symphony’ by The Verve and many more.
Dominic Andersen will play Sebastian Valmont, he previously played Ram in the West End premiere of Heathers and Rocky in The Rocky Horror Show. He has just filmed Netflix’s The Crown, playing Camilla’s boyfriend.
Rebecca Gilhooley, playing Kathryn Merteuil, appeared alongside Sting in the UK premiere of his Broadway musical, The Last Ship.
The cast also includes Evelyn Hoskins (Cecile Caldwell), Scott Hunter (Blaine Tuttle), Sophie Isaacs (Annette Hargrove), Dean John-Wilson (Greg McConnell), Ashley Samuels (Ronald Clifford) and Gemma Salter (Bunny Caldwell).
Cruel Intentions: The ’90s Musical is based on the cult Hollywood film starring Reese Witherspoon, Ryan Phillippe, Sarah Michelle Gellar and Selma Blair that cleverly reimagined the soulless aristocrats of classsic 18th-century French novel Les Liaisons Dangereuses as vapid, sexy, depraved upper-class Manhattan teens.
