“When The Bad Seed meets Gypsy, it’s fun for the whole dysfunctional family!” press notes state. “Tina Denmark is a pretty, charming and demonic third-grader 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 Stage Mother of all musicals.
Currently featured in the cast are Kim Maresca, Paul Pecorino, Rita McKenzie, Andrea McCullough, Jennifer Diamond and Tori Murray.
The musical plays St. Luke’s Theatre, 308 West 46th Street (just west of Eighth Ave.). Tickets are available through RuthlessTheMusical.com or by calling (212) 239-6200.
