Jack, l'Eventreur de Whitechapel at Théâtre de Trévise, Paris 9th arrdt

Expensive productions at fancy venues are not by definition first-rate, any more than moderate plays at simpler playhouses are automatically average in quality. Hidden gems do exist.

Most of the time, though, limited means lead to limited quality, as was pretty much the case in this musical about Jack the Ripper. Historically, it felt rather accurate - at least to the novice I am - and the overall quality was generally OK, so what it resulted in was an efficient history-lesson for the gore-loving teenager I had with me.
