ABOUT Murder Ballad
The UK premiere of rock musical Murder Ballad at the Arts Theatre.
Don’t miss Murder Ballad, the thrilling new musical of love, obsession and murderous desire as it heads to the Arts Theatre this October with West End and Broadway stars Kerry Ellis and Ramin Karimloo.
Fresh from making a critically acclaimed killing off-Broadway, Murder Ballad is a razor-sharp tale of modern relationships, abandoned dreams and treachery in the big city.
Conceived by Rent composer Jonathan Larson and written by the award-winning Julia Jordan with music and lyrics by singer-songwriter Juliana Nash, this is a boldly brilliant and explosive new musical that’s set to be London’s hottest new sensation.
Murder Ballad will run from 29 September 2016 until 3 December 2016 at the Arts Theatre.
Set to pop-rock tunes, Murder Ballad follows Sara (Ellis), a New Yorker who is torn between her dangerous ex-boyfriend and her reliable husband – a treacherous love triangle with the inevitable tragic ending.
Starring Kerry Ellis (Wicked), Ramin Karimloo (Phantom of the Opera), Victoria Hamilton–Barritt (In the Heights) and Norman Bowman (Guys and Dolls).
Completing the cast are Natalie McQueen (alternate Sara/cover Narrator), and Matthew Harvey (cover Michael and Tom).
