Jekyll and Hyde
A rousing gothic musical based on the classic tale of good and evil.
Murder and chaos run rampant and evil lurks around every corner, but love and virtue put up a strong fight in this engaging thriller. Dr. Henry Jekyll, pursuing his life-long quest, endeavors to separate the two natures of man. Refused help by his peers and superiors, he begins experiments on himself with his formula. He meets with success, and shocking results. The evil nature of Dr. Jekyll surfaces as a separate identity: Edward Hyde. Hyde begins murdering the members of the Board of Governors who previously refused assistance to Jekyll’s cause. Meanwhile Jekyll fights in vain to keep his darker half under control. Caught in the cross-fire of this epic internal struggle are Jekyll’s fiancée, Emma Carew; her father, Sir Danvers; Jekyll’s best friend, John Utterson; and a prostitute named Lucy, who becomes entangled with Hyde.
This show mixes together characters from both ends of the social spectrum, songs and scenes that provide ample chills and thrills, and a main character split between the extremes of morality.
