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!”
“This is the perfect event for date night, or girl’s night, or really any night. “Romeo and Juliet “remakes are not a new thing; there are a multitude of different versions, from Baz Luhrmann’s “Romeo + Juliet,” to the musical “West Side Story.” What makes “Romeo & Juliet: Love is a Battlefield” stand out from the rest is its use of Pat Benatar’s angry, empowering anthems to expose the story’s raw sensuality. The lyrics correspond with the emotion and plot of the story so well, you could swear they were originally written for the show.”
“Who knew that the classic songs of Pat Benatar and Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet were a match made in heaven? “Romeo & Juliet: Love is a Battlefield” finds it home at the Rockwell Table and Stage—a gem with a definite vibe—dark, cool, and chic. ” – Julia Stier. neontommy.com
