ABOUT THE SHOW
Eight-year-old Tina Denmark knows she was born to play Pippi Longstocking, and she’ll do anything to win the part in her school musical. Her mother, fellow students, and the rest of the world had better watch out because nothing will stop her quest for stardom!! Cunningly spoofing classic musicals and campy films from Gypsy to The Bad Seed and All About Eve, this aggressively outrageous musical garnered rave reviews during its long Off-Broadway run.
“A spoof that has enough absurd plot twists and multiple identities to fill several old movies… The fun comes from the sheer brazenness!” – The New York Times
