Jennifer Davies as Sarah Talbot
It takes a lot of people to bring together a musical the size of Ripper. Prior to the premiere production, more than 90 performers, directors, designers, and producers had contributed to the readings and recordings that have helped shape the show so far, many of them from Broadway shows you know. Each of them brought a unique contribution to the process, and without them, it would have been impossible to create a show like this.
The Dramatists Guild Writer’s Intensive
Through the Dramatists Guild, Ripper was developed with the guidence of some of the industry’s most accomplished artists, including Lynn Ahrens, Stephen Flaherty and Mark Hollmann, who provided invaluable insights and support.
