Ruthless! The Musical
The camp cult classic from Joel Paley with music by Marvin Laird is filmed from London’s West End following critical acclaim off-Broadway. Ruthless! The Musical famously spoofs Broadway musicals from Gypsy to Mame as well as iconic films including The Bad Seed and All About Eve. Talented eight year old Tina Denmark will do anything to play the lead in her school musical. Anything! As Tina discovers where her talent comes from, she shows us just what it takes to succeed... Premiering in 1992, the show is responsible for discovering young performers Britney Spears and Natalie Portman. This production features Jason Gardiner (Dancing on Ice UK) as overbearing agent Sylvia St Croix who encourages Tina (Anya Evans) to pursue her dreams of a career in showbiz. Kim Maresca is Judy Denmark, ‘Tina’s Mother’, the bland housewife who has ‘absolutely no talent whatsoever’, or does she...? Tracie Bennett (Follies) is Tina’s grandmother, the famously spiky theatre critic Lita Encore, and Harriet Thorpe (Great Britain) is Tina’s teacher and ex-actress Myrna Thorne.
