Get out the black shades! Lucky ticket holders to Cruel Intentions: The Completely Unauthorized Musical Parody got their money's worth when they attended the show at Rockwell Table and Stage in L.A. on Friday, April 17. Ryan Phillippe — yes, the original Sebastian Valmont — came out to support the cast that very night, and was more than excited to relive the 1999 cult classic.

The Secrets and Lies actor, 40, brought six of his pals to the performance, which he posted about on Twitter and Instagram. "Excited to be here #cruelintentionsmusical," he captioned the playbill from his seat. "#CruelIntentionsMusical is so fun! I loved it. Will be going back. Was smiling the entire time. Thank you guys for the love."

Phillippe played bad boy Sebastian in the Roger Kumble-directed flick alongside then-girlfriend Reese Witherspoon (Annette Hargrove), Sarah Michelle Gellar (Kathryn Merteuil), and Selma Blair (Cecile Caldwell). SMG and costar Sean Patrick Thomas (Ronald Clifford) caught the show's opening night on April 10.

Like Gellar, Phillippe met and took photos with the cast after the curtain call. "Ryan was so supportive of the entire cast and showed us so much love," Aly French, who played Annette Friday night, told Us Weekly. "It was really kind that he came and he seemed to have a great time."

Director Lindsey Rosin added that he "loved it" and he "'couldn't remember the last time he smiled for two hours.'"

Actor Constantine Rousouli, who took on Phillippe's role in the musical, also got to meet the original Sebastian in person. "So thankful that this guy @ryanphillippe came to show us some love last night. You're a grade A human," he captioned an Instagram pic of the duo. "Stupidly talented, genuine, humble, and appreciative. #Sebastianvalmonts #CruelIntentionsMusical #horiginal."
