Since this review was published, Marvin Laird and Joel Paley have remade their award winning Off Broadway play, Ruthless!, in preparation for another run in New York City. The best selling 1994 Los Angeles Original Cast recording is evidently out of print, but available on several web sites.
Besides being my friend and fellow Kansas City Kansan, the very gifted Marvin Laird has been Bernadette Peters’ arranger, conductor, and pianist for decades.
