Comic Subversion on the Showboat: "Ruthless" at the Clinton Area Showboat Theatre

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.

I hate The Sound of Music, but on some level, doesn’t everyone? The sugar-coated sensibility, the repetitive songs we know far too well, the Julie Andrews wannabes trilling with relentless cheeriness, the use of Nazis as a pesky, simplistic plot device … . I know that the show is an assured cash cow for producers, but many of us would be happy for the book and score to disappear until the show’s hundredth anniversary in 2059. (I’ll be dead by then, right?)
