Off-Broadway Favorite Ruthless! The Musical Extends Through the End of the Year
The currently running off-Broadway reimagining of Ruthless! The Musical has been extended through January 2 at St. Luke's Theatre. The show, which opened July 13, features a book and lyrics by Joel Paley with music by Marvin Laird. Paley, who helmed the original production, once again serves as director.
In this cult favorite, the beautiful and talented eight-year-old Tina Denmark will do anything to play the lead in the school play. The show famously spoofs Broadway musicals such as Gypsy and Mame, as well as classic films including The Bad Seed and All About Eve. The role of Tina was an early-career stop for the likes of Laura Bell Bundy, Britney Spears, and Natalie Portman during the original Players Theatre run, which began 23 years ago.
Tori Murray, who starred in a recent run of Ruthless at Stage 72 at the Triad Theatre and went on to reprise her role at St. Lukes, will continue to play the role of Tina. The cast will also feature Kim Maresca, Paul Pecorino, Rita McKenzie, Andrea McCullough, and Tracy Jai Edwards.
