Sebastian and Kathryn are reuniting at their old stomping grounds in New York City for Cruel Intentions: The Musical this February.

The run for the Big Apple premiere will take place at the (Le) Poisson Rouge on Feb. 11, 13 and 14.

Created by Jordan Ross and Lindsey Rosin, the musical will see new faces as well as actors from the Los Angeles musical.

The 1999 prep school-set film, based on the French novel Les Liaisons Dangereuses, got a revamp as a musical in 2015 and in 2016.

The sold-out engagements in Los Angeles received seals of approval from the actors, who made the cult film famous.

Reese Witherspoon, who played Annette in the movie, watched the musical as audiences watched her reactions.

Sarah Michelle Gellar, who played Kathryn and Selma Blair, who played Cecille, recreated their iconic kiss at the Rockwell Table & Stage in 2015.

Ross said, “The idea was always to head to New York — it’s like bringing Kathryn and Sebastian back home. We hope this is a starting point for a bright future for the show.”

The show is already getting a reboot, starring Sarah Michelle Gellar reprising her role as the devious Kathryn, who betted on her step-brother’s love life.

“We thought Valentine’s Day would be a great time to go to New York and break a couple hearts. Hopefully in the coming months and in the future, we can mount a full production in New York,” Rosin added.
