Ruthless! features music by Laird and book and lyrics by Paley.
"Take equal parts 'The Bad Seed,' Gypsy, 'All About Eve' and Mame, add a dash of 'Whatever Happened to Baby Jane?,' and you’ve got the hilarious cocktail that is Ruthless! The Musical," press notes state. "It is infused with child actors, agents, managers, the mother of all stage mothers and the mother of the mother of all stage mothers! A hysterical and tuneful send up of all things 'show biz.'"
The evening will also have musical direction by Gregory Nabours and choreography by Joseph Corella. John W. Calder, III is the stage manager, and Jill Marie Burke is the production coordinator.
