The O.C Musical Is Officially Happening, Guys

There seems to be a whole lot of reuniting going on at the moment. And we could not be happier. 

We’ve already had the big announcement of the Clueless musical – can we get a HELL YEAH? – along with the meet up of the Cruel Intentions cast and the Buffy The Vampire Slayer BFFs. My oh my, Sarah Michelle Gellar has been a busy lady. 

Adding to this throwback fun, we’ve also had the announcement of a Harry Potter return, in the form of the Harry Potter And The Cursed Child West End show. 

It’s official. Everything is going musical. It’s just what all the cool kids are doing nowadays. 

The hit TV drama portrayed the lives and loves of four American teens growing up in Orange County, California. 


The O.C Seth Cohen

 

Come on, we all remember crushing on Ryan, who was adopted from the wrong side of the tracks by the wealthy Cohen family.

Or was it comic book nerd Seth who captured your teenage heart? We still haven’t quite chosen a team… 


The O.C Anna and Summer Seth triangle

Music was always a major part of the show, with indie gods such as The Killers, Rooney and (obvs) Death Cab For Cutie gaining cult like status thanks to the series.

Now we can’t wait to see what they come up with for the sing-a-long stage scenes. 

And we hope that these iconic moments are captured too…

1. Seth and Summer being solely responsible for our relationship goals. 

 

2. Summer oozing sass. And those anger blackouts were too LOLs. 

3. The epic love story that was Ryan and Marissa. Sob. 
 
 
4. And those friendship bonds simply gave us all of the feels… 


The O.C cast

 

Produced by the same team that brought us the Cruel Intentions musical, the O.C musical is only planned for a one-night-only show in North Hollywood. However, we’ve still got our fingers crossed for more dates – and even a London trip. Here’s hoping. 

Did somebody say a Chrismukkah Bar Mitz-vahkkah miracle?
