Down side: These days, the story is a bit old. No "memorable songs" to go out humming or entice me to buy the cast recording.
But, great set, professional costuming and blocking, excellent voices in the two female leads, and a fabulous Jeckyl/Hyde, with the song in front of the mirror as the evening's highlight.

Based on Robert Louis Stevenson’s classic novel, Jekyll & Hyde is the story of Dr. Henry Jekyll, who experiments on himself with drugs in a desperate attempt to save the life of his stricken father, and turns himself into the womanizing and murdering Edward Hyde—while as Henry Jekyll, he is preparing to marry Emma, the love of his life.
Frank Wildhorn’s score is described as lush and moving, complementing the story of love, unfettered rage and murder. Songs include “This Is the Moment,” “No One Knows Who I Am,” “In His Eyes” and “Once Upon a Dream,” all accompanied by a live, full orchestra.
Broadway star T. Eric Hart, who has played to standing ovations everywhere, will reprise the role of Jekyll/Hyde.
The revised version of Jekyll & Hyde was so well liked by composer Frank Wildhorn and licensing agency Music Theatre International that arrangements were made for it to be licensed for production by other companies throughout the U.S.. More than 50 productions have been mounted over the past six years.
