Out Critics Circle and Drama Desk winner, Ruthlesss! is a campy cult favorite. this fast-paced and ridiculously funny musical pikes fun at Broadway staples like Gypsy and Mame, as well as classic filks like The Bad See and All About Eve. The play delves unsentimental and hilariously into the world of theater, child acting, parenthood and unbridled ambition.
The plot revolves around the talented eight-year-old, Tina, who declares her show biz ambition, her naïve and sweet 1950s housewife mother Judy, and her sleazy talent agent, Sylvia St. Criox. encouraged by her mother and manager to follow her dreams, Tina kills to get a part in the school play… well, not just ANY part – the lead (what kind of monster do you thinks she is?!).
While Tina spends time in reform school for psychopathic ingenues, Judy realizes her own star power and becomes quite the theatrical sensation.
But the show’s not over until a few identities have been unmasked and revenge has been fully realized… all with the help of jazzy choreography, vintage Broadway charm and a peppy score.
