Synopsis: American Idol star and Tony Award® nominee Constantine Maroulis joins with multi-platinum recording artist and Grammy® nominee Deborah Cox to inject new life into the classic tale of good and evil, JEKYLL & HYDE. Its story, however, remains as timeless as it is irresistible. 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 experimental treatments, accidentally unleashing his inner demons along with the man the world would come to know as Mr. Hyde.

Broadway Reviews

NEW YORK TIMES REVIEW:

"Frank Wildhorn musicals: the crab grass of Broadway. Although they have been liberally sprayed with herbicidal reviews ever since the first, “Jekyll & Hyde,” opened in 1997, they have continued to sprout every few years: “The Civil War” and “Dracula,” “Wonderland” and “Bonnie & Clyde.” Oh, and let’s not forget “The Scarlet Pimpernel,” a production that opened on Broadway not once but twice (long story)."

HOLLYWOOD REPORTER REVIEW:

"To do full justice to the campy excesses of Jekyll & Hyde, this review would most appropriately be delivered in the form of a power ballad. Such overbearing musical numbers permeate this 1997 musical by Frank Wildhorn (music) and Leslie Bricusse (book and lyrics), which previously enjoyed a four year run on Broadway despite critical brickbats. Audiences may also embrace this revival of the turgid tuner based on the classic horror tale by Robert Louis Stevenson despite a likely similar negative reception."

ASSOCIATED PRESS REVIEW:

"Yes, it is bombastic and overwrought. It's true that there's enough smoke to make three Whitesnake videos. OK, it sometimes makes "The Phantom of the Opera" seem small and staid."

VULTURE REVIEW:

"Last night I dreamt I went to Manderley again. Or perhaps it was a castle in Transylvania, or the island of Monte Cristo, or a wormhole to Wonderland, or some other place known to us from classic novels with presold stories and no copyright protection. Ah yes: this one took place in London, in the 1880s, not that you could tell from the steampunk pornwear the housemaids modeled, or the male lead’s fabulous shoulder-length tresses. No matter; the techno thrums and swoopy electronica of the overture made it clear we were in Wildhornia, that land of dark roiling clouds, where actors scream, all the time, and no one alive—or, especially, dead—is safe from predation."

ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY REVIEW:

"''In each of us there are two natures,'' whispers a disembodied voice in the prologue to Frank Wildhorn's Jekyll & Hyde. Good and evil — the ''primitive duality of man,'' he continues (there quoting directly from Robert Louis Stevenson's 1886 novella The Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll & Mr. Hyde). ''It is the curse of mankind that these polar twins should be constantly struggling.''"
