It’s a cruel summer as Kokandy goes all the way with flirty fun and 90s nostalgia in the Chicago storefront premiere of CRUEL INTENTIONS: THE 90s MUSICAL, directed by Artistic Associate Adrian Abel Azevedo. This “fun, sexy, and seductive” show will have audiences grooving along to the infamous bittersweet symphony.

Based on the acclaimed hit film starring Reese Whitherspoon, Ryan Phillippe and Sarah Michelle Gellar, CRUEL INTENTIONS: THE 90s MUSICAL is the ultimate throwback party. Rulers of their elite Manhattan prep school, Sebastian and Kathryn have placed a mischievous bet. As their vengeful crusade wreaks havoc on the students at Manchester Prep, the two devilish step-siblings become entangled in their own web of deception and unexpected romance in this raucous jukebox throwback, featuring fresh takes on familiar 90s jams from No Doubt, *NSYNC, TLC, Garbage, Goo Goo Dolls and more.
