Ruthless! - The Musical revolves around 8 year old Tina Denmark and her mother Judy. Tina wants the lead in the school play and will do anything to get it. In the backround of this idyllic setting is Sylvia, the Ruthless agent with an old secret, Lita Encore, the theater critic and Judy's mother, as well as Miss Thorn, the tired school teacher, Eve, the maid who has a dark secret all her own, Miss Block, a Thespian from New York Daily News and charming, 10 year old Louise Lerman...poor Louise. (You'll have to see the show to get that reference) If you're not totally confused yet, wait until the secrets are not so secret anymore!
