Sarah Michelle Gellar, who starred in the 1999 big-screen version of “Cruel Intentions,” was spotted at the stage version of the show in New York City, where she hung out with the cast.

The 40-year-old actress played Kathryn Merteuil in the original teen drama.

She took a snap with Constantine Rousouli (Sebastian Valmont), Carrie St. Louis (Annette Hargrove) and Lauren Zakrin, who plays Gellar’s movie role.

The film is an adaptation of “Les Liaisons dangereuses”, written in 1872 by Pierre Choderlos de Laclos. It’s set in modern-day New York City and focuses on wealthy high school girls.

Gellar attended a performance of the stage adaptation over the weekend at Poisson Rouge.

“Sometimes you just need to hang out with the younger, better looking and more talented versions of yourself!!,” she wrote on Instagram along with a photo.

“There is nothing bittersweet about the incredible NY production of @cruelmusical You can even get an iced tea (from Long Island) while you watch the show,” she added.

If you attend a performance, that’s Gellar’s voice making the pre-show announcement as bitchy Kathryn. “It’s not that difficult, morons. Take out that second-rate phone and hit the silent button.”

A television version of the movie is reportedly being shopped around after NBC developed it, but later passed on production.

Cruel Intentions: The Musical was adapted by Jordan Ross and Lindsey Rosin. The show made its official Off-Broadway debut earlier this year.
