I was generally disappointed in this show, having seen a much smaller, more successful production last year at the Met, which is a 99 seat theatre. I think the director has made serious mistakes by cutting certain numbers to focus mainly on the three major characters (only one number with girls of the night; and then it was much less effective than the original choreography incorporating a lot of strange ropes instead of the banging of the chairs which made the song so much more entetaining in the original version.) The focus is on the two stars, Constanine and Debra Cox. When Constanine plays hte manic Hyde, he's at his best, but it's the same mania over and over again which gets tiresome after a while. The final song where he sings in both characters as a confrontation is done with a prerecorded mirror image which is less effective in the drama of the story and comes off like an acid trip. This production sacrifices the dramatic moments of the story for the sake of showcasing the stars. Debra Cox, also completely lacks dramatic impact, and just deleivers her songs ala diva. The production is entertaining, but truly lacks merit as a dramatic work in this incarnation. Real fans of the show will be disappointed by the choices made by this director.

Ugh. If I could have escaped this travesty of a production before intermission without disruption I would have. The play is just B A D. The singers give it their all and some of the lyrics are quite clever, but the staging is boring, you couldn't...continued
