Murder Ballad description

Don't miss the UK premiere of Murder Ballad, London’s hottest new rock musical of love, obsession and murderous desire as it makes a strictly limited, star-packed run at London’s Arts Theatre this autumn.

Starring West End and Broadway legends Kerry Ellis (Wicked, Cats) and Ramin Karimloo (The Phantom of the Opera, Les Misérables), Murder Ballad is the tale of Sara, Tom and Michael, three New Yorkers caught in a secret love triangle that could tear their lives apart.

Written by the award-winning Julia Jordan with unforgettable sung-through music and lyrics by singer-songwriter Juliana Nash, Murder Ballad also stars Victoria Hamilton-Barritt (Flashdance, In the Heights) and Norman Bowman (Finding Neverland).

Don’t miss this incredible opportunity to see the biggest stars of musical theatre up close in a wonderfully intimate venue in the heart of the West End. This is a boldly brilliant new musical with a razor-sharp tale of modern relationships in the big city. 

Murder Ballad runs for a strictly limited season until 3rd December – book now!

We had no particular expectations for the show. We totally loved it. It was well written (poetically really), well acted and sung. The staging was simple but creative and effective. The actors were talented, believable, and first rate. A very well written show!!!

Review: MURDER BALLAD at The Arts Theatre

by Stacey Tyler | Wednesday, October 5 2016, 15:36

Murder Ballad The idea of using a murder ballad as the basis of a musical is an unusual concept and I was interested in how this was going to to work on stage within the musical theatre format. My preconception was that although murder ballads make great 4-minute songs, how is this going to work as a 90 minute musical? I need not have worried, we are clearly told at the beginning that the story will simply follow the format of these obsessive songs, and ‘in all great murder ballads, when songs of love-gone-wrong are sung, blood must be spilled, but by who?’ So as the love story begins, I know how it must end.
