Charlotte Breen, Lucy Simmonds, Anya Evans, and Fifi Bloomsbury Khier alternate in the central role of Tina Denmark in the U.K. premiere of Marvin Laird and Joel Paley's Ruthless! The Musical beginning March 16 at London's Arts Theatre.

Directed by Richard Fitch, the satire will officially open March 27 for a limited engagement through June 23.

The young actors join Tracie Bennett, Tony-nominated for her Broadway debut in End of the Rainbow, as theatre critic Lita, Kim Maresca as Judy Denmark (a role she played in the recent Off-Broadway run), Jason Gardiner as Sylvia St. Croix, Lara Denning as Louise Lerman/Eve, and Harriet Thorpe as Myrna Thorn.

The musical tells the story of the beautiful and talented eight-year-old Tina Denmark, who will do anything to play the lead in her school play. The show famously spoofs Broadway musicals from Gypsy to Mame as well as iconic films including The Bad Seed and All About Eve.
