Libretto in Hand

Eliot Ness In Cleveland tells the bizarre story of Ness vs. the Mad Butcher of Kingsbury Run, American’s first serial killer. It is 1933. Ness is already famous, having been credited with bringing in notorious gangsterAl Capone back in Chicago, where Ness headed an elite group of police called the Untouchables. Ness is brought to Cleveland with much fanfare and the lofty expectation that he will clean up rampant crime and corruption in the city and stop the Mad Butcher’s murderous spree. Haunted by the specter of Al Capone, Ness spirals into madness as he tries to capture the Butcher and salvage his own reputation. Book by Peter Ullian – Music and Lyrics by Robert Lindsey-Nassif – Based on the play In the Shadow of the Terminal Tower by Peter Ullian
