Jekyll & Hyde
It’s such a fine line between a good man and a bad…
A true musical theatre phenomenon, Jekyll & Hyde attracted legions of loyal fans even before the show began its smash-hit record breaking Broadway run. Since then it has been a major worldwide hit and now finally it has arrived for its UK Premiere and pre-West End tour, starring Paul Nicholas, in the lead role of the man with the frighteningly alternating personas.
An evocative tale of romance and the epic battle between good and evil, Jekyll & Hyde is based on Robert Louis Stevenson’s classic story about a brilliant doctor whose experiments with human personality create a murderous counterpart. Convinced the cure for his father’s mental illness lies in the separation of Man’s evil nature from his good, Dr. Henry Jekyll unwittingly unleashes his own dark side, wreaking havoc in the streets of late 19th century London as the savage, maniacal Edward Hyde.
Jekyll & Hyde is pure pulse-pounding theatre, with that same macabre combination of fun and fright that fuels such classics as Sweeney Todd and The Phantom Of The Opera, and a lush, romantic pop score that includes the hit songs This Is The Moment, Once Upon a Dream, A New Life and Someone Like You.
…How do you tell evil from good?
Lush and appealing… genuinely moving.
