2nd Melbourne Performance Announced For JEKYLL AND HYDE Starring Anthony Warlow
Concertworks today announced that due to popular demand, a second Melbourne performance of the Australian concert production of Jekyll and Hyde will be performed on Saturday 26 October. Featuring two of Australia's most popular musical theatre performers, Anthony Warlow and Jemma Rix, the second concert will go on sale to the public Monday 5 August at 10:00am.
"I am thrilled to have been invited to recreate the music and lyrics of Frank Wildhorn and Leslie Bricusse for this 25th anniversary celebration of Jekyll & Hyde. After reimagining these iconic characters for the concept recording, I look forward to bringing Frank's 'Gothic Musical' to the Australian stage in these concert performances" said Anthony Warlow.
Jekyll & Hyde features a thrilling score of pop rock hits from multi Grammy and Tony nominated Frank Wildhorn with the Book and Lyrics by double Oscar and Grammy winning Leslie Bricusse. Jekyll & Hyde was originally conceived for the stage by Frank Wildhorn and Steve Cuden.
Leslie Bricusse has written such musical hits as Stop the World - I Want to Get Off, Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory, The Roar of the Greasepaint - The Smell of the Crowd, Victor/Victoria, and Doctor Doolittle. Frank Wildhorn composed the international number one hit song for Whitney Houston, Where Do Broken Hearts Go and his musical theatre credits include Cyrano de Bergerac, The Count of Monte Cristo and The Scarlet Pimpernel.
Based on the "The Strange Case of Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde" by Robert Louis Stevenson, Jekyll & Hyde is a tale of tantalising suspense about the duplicity of human nature: restraint and transgression, brutality and civility - a singularly compelling story of Victorian dread.
