Ruthless, the Musical
What do you get when you take the classic thriller The Bad Seed, add a touch of Gypsy, a dash of All About Eve and throw them all into a blender? One of the funniest musical spoofs ever written, that's what. Sweet little Tina Denmark was born to entertain. And when you're born with talent in your blood, stardom is your destiny. So, it's no wonder that this darling little tot would kill to play Pippi Longstocking in her school play, Pippi in Tahiti. With a cast of recognizable characters and a laugh-out-loud musical score, Ruthless! is an over-the-top, hilariously skewed look at what it takes to make it big in showbiz. Annie it ain't!
