OutSmart’s Gayest and Greatest Award-Winning Company Presents RUTHLESS! The Stage Mother of All Musicals, Starring Colton Berry as Sylvia St. Croix!

RUTHLESS! The Musical humorously gives us a glimpse into the competitive nature of show business, with book and lyrics by Joel Paley and music by Marvin Laird. This dark comedy follows the journey of the talented and overtly-ambitious Tina Denmark, who would do anything to the play the leading role in her third grade musical, even if it means murder. Her mother, Judy Denmark, discovers her own untapped talent, realizes shocking family connections, and proves to be much more than an ordinary housewife. RUTHLESS! is full of Broadway spoofs, twists and turns, and ridiculous conventions that will have you laughing from start to finish. Due to language and violence, parental discretion is advised!

This brand new production of RUTHLESS! stars Colton Berry in a tour de force performance as Sylvia St. Croix. As Tina Denmark, a role previously portrayed on the New York stage by Laura Bell Bundy and understudied by Natalie Portman and Britney Spears, Isabel Alexander and Carrigan Moon give show-stopping performances on alternating nights. In the role of Tina’s mother, Judy, Nicole Ercan and Elizabeth Chrisman Shurtz shine as bright as a Broadway marquee, also on alternating nights. The entirely Houston-local cast also stars Donna Taylor as Louise Lerman, Donna Barnett as Miss Thorn, Beckie Cohen and Caryn Fulda as Lita Encore (alternating), and Julia Noble and Pari Zangara as Eve (alternating). RUTHLESS! is Directed and Choreographed by Founding Executive Director Luke Hamilton. Elizabeth Chrisman Shurtz serves as Music Director and Ashley Frye as Production Stage Manager.
