What would you do for the role of a lifetime? In the case of Tina Denmark, an adorable 8-year- old with a consuming drive for stardom, the real question is: "What wouldn't you do?" Ambition runs amok in "Ruthless! The Musical." This outrageous musical hit is a hysterical send up of the entertainment business. You'll laugh, cry and be on the edge of your seat from the suspenseful start to a truly unforgettable finish.
"Ruthless! The Musical" is a hilarious musical by Marvin Laird (music) and Joel Paley (book and lyrics) that spoofs Broadway musicals, like Gypsy and Mame, and movies such as The Bad Seed and All About Eve.
The musical premiered Off-Broadway at the Players Theatre on March 13, 1992 and closed January 24, 1993 after 342 performances. It was directed by Joel Paley with musical direction by Marvin Laird. The central role of Tina was played by future Broadway actress Laura Bell Bundy, and featured Natalie Portman and Britney Spears as understudies.
Directed by Chrissy Burns; Musical Direction by Rick Shaffer; Choreography by Jennifer Solomon-Rubio.
