Jekyll & Hyde to Close Early on Broadway
The Broadway revival of Jekyll & Hyde is closing earlier than planned. Rather than its previously scheduled closing date of June 30, it will play its final performance at the Marquis Theatre May 12 at 7 PM.
After a national tour, it began previews April 5 and officially opened on Broadway April 18. Previously it spent four “thrilling, chilling” years on Broadway and spawned multiple world-wide tours, and was nominated for four Tony Awards.
“American Idol” finalist Constantine Maroulis (Rock of Ages, The Wedding Singer, national tour of Rent) plays the dual title roles of Dr. Henry Jekyll and Edward Hyde; R&B star Deborah Cox stars as love interest as Lucy.
Jekyll & Hyde is based on the novella “The Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde” by Robert Louis Stevenson, about “a London doctor who accidentally unleashes his evil alternate personality in his quest to cure his father’s mental illness,” according to production notes.
Frank Wildhorn and Steve Cuden created this idea for a musical, Leslie Bricusse wrote the book and lyrics, and Wildhorn composed the music.
