JEKYLL AND HYDE Comes to Casa Manana

Casa Mañana Theatre continues its 2017-18 Broadway Season presented by Frank Kent Cadillac with Jekyll & Hyde, March 3-11. Tickets are on sale now.

An evocative and sweeping musical tale of 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. Featuring a thrilling score of pop-rock hits from Frank Wildhorn and Leslie Bricusse, Jekyll & Hyde tells the saga of these counterparts - one, a doctor, passionate and romantic; the other, a terrifying madman - and the two women in love with him, unknowing of each other or his dark secret. This show is suitable for mature audiences.

Jekyll & Hyde stars Broadway veteran Bradley Dean in the title role, with Sarah Stevens as "Emma Carew" and Caitlyn Caughell as "Lucy Harris." Mr. Dean is reprising the role following the international Korean tour. His lengthy Broadway credits include Doctor Zhivago, Spamalot, Man of La Mancha and Evita, and many Casa patrons will remember his portrayal of "King Arthur" in Camelot in 2013. Ms. Stevens is returning to Casa after portraying "Tzeitel" in Fiddler on the Roof. Ms. Caughell is making her debut on the Casa stage. Her credits include Newsies on Broadway and the national tour of The Bridges of Madison County. Other cast members include: Bob Hess as "Sir Danvers Carew," Douglas Goodhart as "Gabriel John Utterson," Christopher J. Deaton as "Sir Archibald Proops/ Dr. Jekyll/Mr. Hyde u/s," Perry Sook as "Simon Stride," Zak Reynolds as "Bissett," Greg Dulcie as "Bishop of Basingstoke," Andrew Keeler as "Lord Savage," Brian Mathis as "General Lord Glossop," Sarah Gay as "Lady Beaconsfield," Cara Statham Serber as "Guinevere," Monique Abry as "Nellie" and Amber Flores, Maggie Spicer and Cora Grace Winstead comprise the ensemble.

Jekyll & Hyde is directed by Tee Scatuorchio and choreographed by Jeremy Dumont. Mr. Scatuorchio last directed Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat at Casa. He worked on Broadway with Arthur Laurents on the revival of Gypsy starring Tyne Daly and Nick & Nora starring Barry Bostwick and Joanna Gleason. Mr. Dumont choreographs and teachers throughout the Metroplex. His most recent work at Casa Mañana includes Spamalot, Rock of Ages and the restaging of Jerome Robbin's original choreography in Casa's critically-acclaimed West Side Story last season.
