Ruthless! is a campy cult favorite about Tina Denmark, the greatest song-and-dance sensation to ever hit the third grade. When her school holds auditions for Pippi in Tahiti, Tina proves she will do anything to play the lead…anything! This outrageous musical famously spoofs Broadway musicals such as Gypsy and Mame, as well as classic films including The Bad Seed and All About Eve. An Off-Broadway sensation, Ruthless! is the winner of Drama Desk and Outer Critics Circle Awards.
