HEAR THE SCORE
Excerpts from different cast recordings including the award-winning Broadway Rose production.
Set against the backdrop of history's most notorious unsolved crime spree in the East End of London, 1888, Ripper is a romantic thriller with a big score, an intricate plot and host of suspicious characters.
At the seedy, PennyWise cafe, Mrs. Ratkin performs death-defying illusions for the locals while real murders take place on the streets outside. Reporter Chester Talbot is sent to cover the story for the Daily Telegraph, only to discover that his own past may be intertwined with the performers on stage and the prostitutes upstairs.
In this mysterious world, nothing is what it seems as Chester delves deeper into the story, with the ever-present danger of a killer lurking in the shadows.
