The Mousetrap As the lights dimmed for the Clinton Area Showboat Theatre's production of The Mousetrap - based on Agatha Christie's mystery novel - I already knew whodunnit. But don't be fooled into thinking that I possess superhuman powers of deduction or anything. I was in a high-school production of the play some 20 years ago. (Fine. Twenty-three years ago. Happy, Mom?)

So I'm not exactly fit to comment on how successfully Christie's murderous plot plays itself out here. Yet my familiarity with the story didn't lessen my enjoyment of CAST's endeavor in the slightest. Quite the contrary: I loved this production, because the vigor with which the Mousetrap ensemble played their comically shady characters was positively exhilarating.

Black comedy is tough to pull off, and camp is even tougher, so it’s no small praise to say that the Clinton Area Showboat Theatre’s production of Ruthless is a huge success. This savvy, ballsy musical about a mother-daughter duo who will literally kill to succeed in show biz is so mean and bitchy that it’s sure to piss off or offend all the right people, and it’s a credit to the comic subversion of the theatre’s artistic director, Jay Berkow, that he chose Ruthless as the theatre’s Sound of Music follow-up. The show is vicious and borderline inhuman … and I could barely see my notepad through my tears of laughter.
