Reese Witherspoon, Selma Blair and Sarah Michelle Gellar took a quick trip back to the ’90s on Thursday when they met up for a ladies’ night in Los Angeles – Cruel Intentions-style.

The actresses, who costarred in the 1999 teen-romance hit, sat front row at the The Unauthorized Musical Parody of Cruel Intentions at the Rockwell Table & Stage in Hollywood, cheering and singing to the stage adaptation of the fan-favorite film.

While sipping martinis and snapping selfies beside the stage, the trio spent the entire show belting the lyrics to all the songs. (“Bittersweet Symphony”, anyone?)

Witherspoon momentarily joined in from the audience to reprise her role as the virtuous blonde during a song titled “Torn,” performed by John Krause as Sebastian and Molly McCook as Annette.

During a musical break in the tune, Annette ran after Sebastian and shouted “Wait!” before pulling him in for a big kiss. As soon as McCook delivered her line, Witherspoon repeated “Wait!” in perfect character, earning an explosion of cheers from the crowd.

The gals were joined by another special guest, the director and writer of the original movie, Roger Kumble, who attended the performance with his wife. The group toasted Kumble’s birthday (he turned 49 Thursday) with a cake during the curtain call and recruited the audience for a big “Happy Birthday” sing-along.

And let’s not forget SMG and Blair’s recreation of the infamous smooch.

After the show, the movie cast joined their stage doppelgängers backstage and posed for photos. Witherspoon also handed out boxes of candy to each of the actors, also telling the show’s creator that it was “the best thing ever.”

Witherspoon and Blair, who also teamed up in the rom-com Legally Blonde in 2001, shared moments from the reunion on Instagram and Twitter, dubbing it the “best girls night of the year!”

Catch the show at the Rockwell on Thursday and Friday nights throughout June and July.
