Ruthless! is a darkly comedic musical that follows the story of young Tina Denmark, a seemingly sweet and talented girl who dreams of becoming a Broadway star. But behind her innocent façade lies a ruthless and ambitious personality, willing to go to extreme lengths to achieve fame. Tina’s overbearing mother, Judy, is determined to see her daughter in the spotlight, even if it means eliminating her competition. Ruthless! parodies the cutthroat world of show business.
