Hidden in an unassuming alleyway in Los Feliz, you’ll find Rockwell Table and Stage and one of the most entertaining brunches ever. Not only do they serve up brunch classics with bottomless mimosas, but they put on shows. Cast with Broadway singers and dancers, you can enjoy unauthorized musical renditions and parodies that are so good, the original actors stop by to catch the show.
Sarah Michelle Gellar, Reese Witherspoon, and Selma Blair brought the ’90s back for an impromptuCruel Intentions reunion. But not satisfied with a simple get-together over brunch, the women took their mini-reunion to the Cruel Intentions musical, which is just as awesome as it sounds.
Reese posted pictures to her Instagram and Twitter at Cruel Intentions: The Completely Unauthorized Musical Parody (which, yes, is a thing that exists). Naturally, people in the audience and cast members were also pretty excited about seeing the stars there too.
Cue Counting Crows’ “Colorblind” tune! Fans of the 1999 romance drama Cruel Intentions are allowed to officially freak out right about now, because Sarah Michelle Gellar just relived her Kathryn Merteuil days. The actress attended Cruel Intentions, the Unauthorized Musical Parody at L.A.’s Rockwell Table and Stage on Friday, April 10.
Gellar reunited with her costar Sean Patrick Thomas (Ronald Clifford) and writer Roger Kumble for the special event. The trio sat at the same table, and cheered on the cast, which included American Idol alum Katie Stevens (Kathryn), Jared Kusnitz (Blaine Tuttle), Constantine Rousouli (Sebastian Valmont), and Pitch Perfect’s Shelley Regner (Cecile Caldwell). The musical included some of the most iconic dialogue from the film and mixed in some epic ’90s songs.
A new musical based on everybody’s favorite guilty pleasure Cruel Intentions, has been floating around Los Angeles, and Katherine herself — Sarah Michelle Gellar — turned up to see what the fuss was about.
Sarah looked on as the cast recreated her infamous kissing scene with Selma Blair, and of course it gave the actress a few flashbacks:
“It’s so crazy. It was such a flood of memories. I don’t necessarily think of it as me,” Sarah told People. “But then they started talking, and I could feel the words coming out of my mouth!” Run, don’t walk, to the Rockwell Table & Stage Cruel Intentions fans in Los Angeles: The musical is only showing through April.
Last night Buffy the Vampire Slayer attended the premier performance of Cruel Intentions, the Unauthorized Musical Parody in Los Angeles. Gellar reunited with Sean Patrick Thomas and writer Roger Kumble for the performance. She seems to have enjoyed the musical adaptation of one of the greatest teen movies ever made.
“Oh it’s going down tonight #cruelintentionsthemusical #Rockwell,” she captioned the Instagram photo she shared of the script.
Gellar was joined by the film’s original writer/director Roger Kumble and costar Sean Patrick Thomas. The group laughed, cheered and took photos from their seats, and after, Gellar rushed backstage to meet and praise her counterpart.
“It’s so crazy. It was such a flood of memories. I don’t necessarily think of it as me,” Gellar revealed. “But then they started talking, and I could feel the words coming out of my mouth!”
