THEA-RuthlessRuthless, the Musical | Wednesday, October 9–November 3
A gem of a satirical comedy about the consuming drive for stardom. Suburban housewife Judy Denmark is dull as dull can be, but her daughter, Tina, is the greatest song-and-dance sensation to ever hit the third grade. She’s cute. She dances. She sings. And she would do anything to get the lead role in her school play…ANYTHING! Move over Honey Boo Boo, this outrageous and hysterically funny musical hit garnered rave reviews during its Off-Broadway run in the early 90s, and is ripe for a revival in today’s celebrity driven world.  Actor’s Playhouse at the Miracle Theatre, 280 Miracle Mile. Coral Gables 305-444-9293 x611
