This gothic musical is an epic tale of the battle between good and evil.
Jekyll & Hyde is based on Robert Louis Stevenson's classic novella 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.
This is a moving and lasting musical theatre experience with songs including Façade, Someone Like Me, This is the Moment and the devastating Confrontation.
This amateur production was presented by arrangement with Josef Weinberger Ltd on behalf of Music Theatre International of New York.
