Ruthless! The Musical
Actress Tina Denmark is cunning, narcissistic, and willing to do anything to get the part. She’s also eight years old. So when her classmate Louisa Lerman lands the lead role in the latest school play, there’s only one thing for Tina to do—and isn’t it a shame how dangerous a stage can be for a careless young actress. But when Tina’s mom, Judy, gets bitten by the drama bug as well, it’s clear that Tina’s not the only one in her family out for blood.
When Ruthless! The Musical opened in 1992, it starred Laura Bell Bundy (who went on to become Amber Von Tussle in Hairspray) as the occasionally homicidal second-grader, with future space-princess Natalie Portman and future pop diva Britney Spears as her understudies. Fifth-grader Tori Murray muscles into the spotlight in her Off Broadway debut for this new production, and a cast of one-woman-show stars back her up as Tina’s mother, co-stars, and mysterious other relatives. Together, they’ve earned the praise of such cultural authorities as the New York Times, who called the new production “a spiked Shirley Temple of a show.” Likewise, Entertainment Weekly praised it as “uproarious!”
