INTRODUCING NEW INDEPENDENT THEATRE COMPANY

THE MUSICAL

BOOK AND LYRICS BY JOEL PALEY
MUSIC BY MARVIN LAIRD

REGINALD THEATRE, SEYMOUR CENTRE

Producer ALISTAIR THOMSON and director LISA FRESHWATER are thrilled to announce that their new independent theatre company THE THEATRE DIVISION will produce the Sydney Premiere season of RUTHLESS! THE MUSICAL, playing an exclusive three-week season from 20 June to 5 July 2014 as part of The 2014 Reginald Season at The Seymour Centre.
Winner of the New York Outer Critics Circle Award for Best Off-Broadway Musical, RUTHLESS! is a razor sharp send-up of the entertainment business, full of witty one-liners, bright, brassy show tunes and ingenious plot twists. RUTHLESS! turns housewives into movie stars, grandmothers into grand dames, and children into sociopaths, all the while parodying Broadway and Hollywood classics Gypsy, Mame, The Women, The Bad Seed and All About Eve.
The Sydney premiere of this hilarious dark comedy stars an all-female cast featuring musical theatre favourites KATRINA RETALLICK, MEREDITH O’REILLY, MARGI DE FERRANTI and CAITLIN BERRY, with the iconic GERALDINE TURNER as Broadway critic ‘Lita Encore’.
THE THEATRE DIVISION is an emerging independent theatre company established in 2014 by producer Alistair Thomson and director Lisa Freshwater to develop, produce and tour popular, innovative live entertainment.
Productions will range from intimate solo shows and regional tours to concerts and large-scale theatrical productions. THE THEATRE DIVISION is the culmination of Thomson and Freshwater’s creative partnership that has seen the production of the charity concerts Raise the Roof! and Hats Off! and the Launchpad cabaret seasons. Freshwater directed the new Australian musicals Every Single Saturday and Life Force and Thomson produced the Sydney premiere of Follies at the SOH.
