Take a journey into a captivating world of dark secrets with Frank Wildhorn, Steve Cuden, and Leslie Bricusse's gripping musical thriller Jekyll & Hyde at Webster Theatre Guild this fall! Intended for mature audiences, this evocative tale of the epic battle between good and evil 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.

CABARET LIFE NYC: Mid-Year Cabaret Review--Best (and Favorite) 20 Shows and Performances (So Far) for 2014
by Stephen Hanks - Jul 05, 2014

Since I attended more than 50 shows over the past eight months (a few more than once)--the large majority of which were reviewed on these web pages—I felt I had more than enough cabaret show inventory to present my second-annual “Mid-Year Cabaret Review” citing the “20 Best Cabaret Shows and Performances” for the first half of 2014. Since the eligibility period for 2014 BroadwayWorld New York Cabaret Award consideration begins with shows staged since last November (late October if it was the first of a run), I've included a few of those late 2013 shows in this group. And with the announcement of the BWW Award nominees just four months away, I've offered some projections on the Award categories for which these shows very well might receive consideration.

BWW Reviews: Broadway at the Beach - Bart Shatto in JEKYLL & HYDE
by Michael T. Mooney - Jun 24, 2014

Last summer Beach Haven's Surflight Theatre came back from superstorm Sandy with a superb production of 'Les Miserables' starring Broadway's Bart Shatto as Jean Valjean. This summer, Broadway's got 'Les Mis,' but luckily the beach still has Bart. Shatto currently stars as not one, but two 19th century protagonists, 'Jekyll & Hyde,' in Frank Wildhorn's 1997 musical sensation. It's almost as if he were playing Valjean and Javert. If such a thing were possible, Shatto would be the man to do it. (more...)

JEKYLL & HYDE ist ab Herbst im Theater Gera zu sehen
by Iris Moebius - Jun 20, 2014

Schonungslos-fortschrittlich, aber im Ausleben unterdruckter Triebe erschreckend egoistisch - der Protagonist aus Stevensons (1850-1894) Novelle wirkt auf uns bis heute faszinierend und abstoßend zugleich. Wildhorns (*1959) Pop-Rock-Musical transponiert diese Ambivalenz mit großen, klanggewaltig-dusteren Balladen mitreißend und fesselnd in die Gegenwart. Die Premiere findet am 28.11.2014 im Großen Haus des Theaters Gera statt, weitere Termine gibt es im Dezember 2014 und Mai 2015. (more...)
