Murder and chaos are pitted against love and virtue in this sweeping gothic musical.
The epic struggle between good and evil comes to life on stage in the musical phenomenon, Jekyll & Hyde.
Based on the
classic story by Robert Louis Stevenson and featuring a thrilling
score of pop rock hits from multi-Grammy and TONY nominated Frank
Wildhorn & double
Oscar and Grammy-winning Leslie Bricusse, Jekyll & Hyde has
mesmerized audiences the world over.
An evocative tale of two men – one a doctor, passionate and romantic –
the other, a terrifying madman; and two women - one, beautiful and
other, beautiful and trusting only herself. Both women in love with
the same man. Both unaware of his dark secret.
A devoted man of science, Dr. Henry Jekyll is driven to find a chemical
breakthrough that can solve
some of mankind’s most challenging medical dilemmas. Rebuffed by the
powers that be, he decides to make himself the subject of his own
treatments, accidentally unleashing his inner demons along with the
man the world would come to know as Mr. Hyde.
