Description

A true musical theatre phenomenon, “Jekyll & Hyde” attracted legions of loyal fans even before the show began its smash-hit Broadway run.

An evocative tale of the epic battle between good and evil, “Jekyll & Hyde” is based on Robert Louis Stevenson’s classic story about a brilliant doctor whose experiments with human personality create a murderous counterpart. Convinced the cure for his father’s mental illness lies in the separation of Man’s evil nature from his good, Dr. Henry Jekyll unwittingly unleashes his own dark side, wreaking havoc in the streets of late 19th century London as the savage, maniacal Edward Hyde.

“Jekyll & Hyde” is pure pulse-pounding theatre, with that same macabre combination of fun and fright that fuels such classics as “Sweeney Todd” and “The Phantom Of The Opera,” and a lush, romantic pop score that includes the hit songs “This Is The Moment” and “Someone Like You.” The show features a trio of star-making roles in Dr. Jekyll, his sympathetic fiancee Emma and Lucy, the woman he rescues from a life of sin who later succumbs to the uncontrolled passions of Mr. Hyde.

The cast includes both professional guest actors and young local talent.

All patrons in attendance at the Opening Night show are invited to the post-show reception with free snacks and champagne.
