". . . it's a smart, bright honey of a show with mischief on its mind and a great match for the considerable talent assembled by Theatre Elision." -Talkin' Broadway

"Ruthless" is a hilarious musical that has been an off-broadway smash hit since premiering in 1992, and was a Drama Desk and Outer Critics Circle award winner.  This all-female production spoofs Broadway musicals, like Gypsy and Mame, and movies such as The Bad Seed and All About Eve.  It is the story of Tina, a precocious eight-year-old who knows she was born to play Pippi Longstocking in her school play, and will do anything to get the part, including murdering the leading lady!

"I cannot praise the cast enough, I have to wonder if Ruthless has ever been as good as it is with this cast." -Stages of MN
