Jason Gardiner, Tracie Bennett and Kim Maresca in rehearsals for Ruthless!
The show comes to the West End this month
Images have been released showing the cast of Ruthless! in rehearsals for the show ahead of its opening later this month at the Arts Theatre.
Directed by Richard Fitch, Joel Paley and Marvin Laird's show spoofs Broadway musicals such as Gypsy and Mame. When the piece first debuted off-Broadway in 1992, it discovered the talents of the likes of Natalie Portman and Britney Spears.
This new production will star Dancing on Ice's Jason Gardiner, Tracie Bennett (Follies) and Kim Maresca (Ruthless!, off-Broadway). The Menier Chocolate Factory will act as executive producer and general manager.
The piece has choreography by Rebecca Howell and musical supervision by Gareth Valentine.
Ruthless! the Musical runs at the Arts Theatre from 27 March to 23 June, with previews from 16 March.
