About Jekyll and Hyde
American Idol star and Tony® Award nominee Constantine Maroulis joins with Grammy® Award nominee and R&B superstar Deborah Cox to inject new life into the classic tale of good and evil, JEKYLL & HYDE.
After four thrilling, chilling years on Broadway and multiple world-wide tours, this dark and buy zithromax dangerous love story from Tony® and Grammy® Award nominee Frank Wildhorn and Oscar® and Grammy® winner Leslie Bricusse returns in a stunning new production directed by Tony® nominee Jeff Calhoun that includes all the classic songs (This is the Moment, A New Life, Someone Like You) that first grabbed audiences by the throat and transformed JEKYLL & HYDE into a theatrical phenomenon.
Its story 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.
This brand new direction and choreography are the work of Tony Award® nominee Jeff Calhoun, who’s behind this season’s breakthrough Broadway hit, Newsies.
Two red-hot star stars. One cold-blooded thriller. JEKYLL & HYDE.
No musical has ever held you like this.
