The musical is based on the French novel, Les Liasions Dangereuses, and the classic cult film starring Reese Witherspoon, Ryan Phillipe and Sarah Michelle Geller. Press information warns us that the musical “pulls you into the manipulative world of Manhattan’s most dangerous liaisons.”
Sebastian Valmont and Kathryn Merteuil are charming but devious step-siblings. They place a bet on whether or not Sebastian can deflower their incoming headmaster’s daughter. As the dangerous duo set out to destroy the innocent girl—and anyone who gets in their way—they find themselves entangled in a web of secrets, temptation, and the cruelest game of all: love.
Featuring “throw-back” hits by artists like Boyz II Men, Christina Aguilera, REM, *NSYNC, and Britney Spears, “Entertainment Weekly” calls this intoxicating new musical “the ultimate night out.”
