Based on Robert Louis Stevenson’s classic thriller, Jekyll & Hyde is the gripping tale of a brilliant mind gone horrifically awry, set to a powerful pop-rock score by Frank Wildhorn with book and lyrics by Leslie Bricusse.
In an attempt to cure his ailing father’s mental illness by separating “good” from “evil” in the human personality, talented physician Dr. Jekyll inadvertently creates an alternate personality of pure evil, dubbed Mr. Hyde, who wreaks murderous havoc on the city of London.
As his fiancée Emma grows increasingly fearful for her betrothed, a prostitute, Lucy, finds herself dangerously involved with both the doctor and his alter ego. Struggling to control Hyde before he takes over for good, Jekyll must race to find a cure for the demon he has created in his own mind.
Inspired by the 2006 'Resurrection' studio recording, this production will lean away from the traditional musical theatre sound and towards a more hard rock sound of shows like Bat Out of Hell. For those of you who have been waiting for a chance to rock out like that then “This Is The Moment” you have been waiting for!
Please note this production contains strobe lighting, gunshot sound effects, sexual references and a certain amount of blood and gore. Not suitable for young children.
