Ripper recording - the home stretch

For the past two years, I’ve had the extreme pleasure of working with a wonderful group of performers on the studio recording of “Jack the Ripper: The Whitechapel Musical.” This theatrical collaboration, written with Christopher-Michael DiGrazia, brings this horrific, unsolved murder-mystery to life, and features a score that, “brilliantly captures all the grisly details of the 1888 London murders” (Beverly Creasey, Boston Arts Review).  The performers who have contributed their talents to this recording cross genres and geograpical locations, from the worlds of musical theater and opera, from Boston to New York to the west coast, and I am tremendously grateful to have had them lend their talents to this project.  They include:

Matt Phillipps as Jack

Holly Jennings as Mary

Michael Levesque as Inspector Abberline
along with:
AnneMarie Alvarez
Alexandra Dietrich
Lori L'Italien
Steven Martin
Stephen Murray
Agatha Oehlkers
Ben Oehlkers
Eric Rehm
Tristyn Sepersky
Kathleen Tringale
and featuring (on "Here and Now") :

Cristin J. Hubbard (Broadway's Phantom of the Opera)

Kathryn Howell

Maryann Zschau

I have spent over 100 hours with Doug Hammer at his Dreamworld studio recording the 27 tracks that comprise this recording, and now I humbly ask your help in bringing this project to its creative conclusion. All the money from your donation will go towards the mixing, mastering, designing and distribution for this premiere recording. A melodic memento for fans of all things musical theater (especially of "Sweeney Todd" and "Les Miserables"), as well as those fascinated by the different theories behind the infamous Whitechapel murders, I hope you will donate what you can to the studio recording of “Jack the RIpper: The Whitechapel Musical.”

As a token of thanks, there are a variety of levels at which you can give to this project, and their respective perks are a small token of my sincere appreciation for your donation to this new musical work. Please take a look and donate at whatever level you feel comfortable.  Thank you!
