Cruel Intentions: The 90’s Musical

Cruel-Intentions-Kelsey-Halge-and-cast-photo-by-Nicole-ClearyCruel Intentions: The 90’s Musical is a dynamic, sexy, sassy musical set against a 90’s soundtrack.

The musical takes the best lines and scenes from a rather slow paced movie and transforms it into a vibrant production.

The soundtrack is cleverly inserted throughout the narrative and includes such iconic tunes as Genie in a Bottle, Losing my Religion, Torn and Bittersweet Symphony.

The plot relies heavily on sexual innuendo and references as step siblings Kathryn Mertevil and Sebastian Valmont plot revenge and sexual conquests that have Cruel Intentions. Be prepared to be confronted by some male flesh.

The cast is exceptional, and the three leads Kirby Burgess as Kathryn Merteuil, Drew Weston as Sebastian Valmont and Kelsey Halge as Annette Hargrove are a powerhouse and exude a commanding presence on stage. Their voices are amazing and support each other through some dynamic and heartfelt numbers.

Francine Cain as the naïve Cecile Caldwell steals some of the best laughs throughout the show while Euan Fistrovic Doidge as Blaine Tuttle and Joseph Spanti as Greg McConnell steal the loudest applause for their routine, Bye, Bye, Bye.

Choreography by Freya List is slick and tight. At times moving and others dramatically entertaining and comedic.

Scenic design by James Browne and lighting by Declan O’Neill are an artistic delight in their own right transporting the audience seamlessly through the various scenes.

Cruel Intentions: The 90’s Musical is an evening of riotous fun with an exceptional cast that deliver a dynamic performance.
