Glamorous, sexy and deliciously wicked, “Jekyll & Hyde” is the enthralling musical based on Robert Louis Stevenson’s classic story about a brilliant but obsessive scientist whose alter ego wreaks havoc across Victorian London. An evocative tale of two men — one a doctor, passionate and romantic — the other, a terrifying madman; and two women — one, beautiful and trusting — the other, beautiful and trusting only herself. Both in love with the same man and both unaware of his dark secret. 

Featuring a thrilling pop rock score including the unforgettable hit, “This Is The Moment” from multi-Grammy and Tony-nominated Frank Wildhorn, and double-Oscar and Grammy-winning Leslie Bricusse, “Jekyll & Hyde” has mesmerized audiences the world over. 

“Lush, appealing and genuinely moving” proclaims the New York Daily News. Jekyll & Hyde is back. Don’t miss it!
