STAGE TUBE: New Behind-the-Scenes Featurette for Off-Broadway's RUTHLESS!
A brand-new featurette goes behind the scenes of RUTHLESS! The Musical, encapsulating the fun and frantic journey of this new production, and you can check it out below! RUTHLESS opened Off-Broadway this past Monday night.
Book and lyrics are by Joel Paley with music by Marvin Laird. Joel Paley also directed the original production of RUTHLESS! as well as productions in L.A., South Beach and the record-breaking concert event starring Bernadette Peters. He once again serves as director of the new production, with Marvin Laird on board as music supervisor as well.
When THE BAD SEED meets GYPSY it's fun for the whole dysfunctional family! Tina Denmark is a pretty, charming and diabolical eight-year-old who "was born to entertain." With the encouragement of slick and overbearing potential agent Sylvia St. Croix, Tina will do anything to play the lead in her school play. The question is, where does such remarkable talent and unstoppable ambition come from? The answer is shocking in this award-winning Stage Mother of all musicals.
Featured in the cast of RUTHLESS! are Peter Land (CABARET, ALL'S WELL THAT ENDS WELL, MY FAIR LADY), Kim Maresca(Westport's TWELFTH NIGHT), Rita McKenzie (ETHEL MERMAN'S BROADWAY, RUTHLESS L.A.), Andrea McCullough (URINETOWN, GREASE),Tracy Jai Edwards (HAIRSPRAY, LEGALLY BLONDE), and introducing Tori Murray (Paper Mill's NEW VOICES OF 2014: OH, WHAT A NIGHT!).
