Has Jack the Ripper finally met his match? Find out in this madcap musical romp. Herbert Wingate, an irrepressible cockney sausage stuffer, takes on the ruthless murderer in the foggy, gas-lit streets of Whitechapel. JACK’S BACK! is sure to reach your heart and your funny bone as Herbert’s zany schemes unfold, as he valiantly struggles to make the streets safe and his dreams come true. Tom Herman contributes a rich new score that’s Broadway meets Operetta meets Vaudeville.
