The UK premiere of musical Cruel Intentions has been announced.

The show is due to run as part of the Assembly line-up this year, between 1 and 25 August.

Cruel Intentions features music from '90s pop musicians such as Britney Spears, Boyz II Men, Christina Aguilera, Natalie Imbruglia, *NSYNC and REM.

Jordan Ross, Lindsey Rosin and Roger Kumble's musical is based on the cult Hollywood film starring Reese Witherspoon, Ryan Phillippe, Sarah Michelle Gellar and Selma Blair and the French novel, Les Liasions Dangereuses. It follows two siblings intent on destroying an innocent girl.

The immersive show has already been seen in New York and Los Angeles. Jonathan O'Boyle will direct, with choreography from Gary Lloyd at Assembly George Square.
