The four young stars of Ruthless

Meet the four young actresses alternating in the central role of Tina Denmark in the UK premiere of award-winning all-female character camp killer cult classic RUTHLESS! THE MUSICAL, starting performances later this month at London's Arts Theatre.

Fifi Bloomsbury Khier, Charlotte Breen, Anya Evans and Lucy Simmonds join Jason Gardiner, Lara Denning, Kim Maresca, Harriet Thorpe and Tracie Bennett, completing the full company ahead of its strictly limited 14-week run.

The musical has played Off-Broadway to critical acclaim over the past 25 years. This brand new production, directed by Richard Fitch, opens on 27 March 2018, with previews from 16 March, and runs until 23 June.

How far would you go to get what you want? Ruthless! The Musical tells the story of the beautiful and talented 8-year-old Tina Denmark who will do anything to play the lead in her school play… ANYTHING!

Ruthless! started Off-Broadway 25 years ago and discovered young performers including Britney Spears and Natalie Portman. The show famously spoofs Broadway musicals from Gypsy to Mame, as well as iconic films including The Bad Seed and All About Eve.

The book and lyrics for Ruthless! are by Joel Paley, with music by Marvin Laird. In the creative team are choreographer Rebecca Howell, designer Morgan Large, lighting designer Tim Lutkin, sound designer Gregory Clarke and musical supervisor Gareth Valentine.
