 Whitechapel, Original Musical

The Devil in Whitechapel, Original Musical

Presented by Sigman Brothers. Set in the bustling and brutal streets of Chicago and London in the late 1800s and against the backdrop of the Columbian Exposition of 1893,The Devil & Whitechapel is a darkly comic musical that tells the story H. H. Holmes, America's first and perhaps most infamous and prolific serial killer…who just might have also been Jack the Ripper! Filled with spectacular and memorable music and brilliantly sophisticated lyrics, and sporting a central character that is part Harold Hill and part Hannibal Lecter, this "Tale of Two Cities" emerges as a scathing indictment of "The American Dream" gone horribly wrong.
