Lauren Wilson's Chemical Imbalance: A Jekyll and Hyde Play

Caldwell Gets Its Silly On 

Talk about Scandal!  Tiger Woods, Bernie Madoff and Scott Rothstein have nothing on Caldwell's Dr. Jekyll.  In one day he strangles a dog, his cousin and his girlfriend.  Worse yet, he pops a little girl's balloon.  Which leaves only one question...who will clean up the bodies? 

Caldwell Theatre Company presents Lauren Wilson's Chemical Imbalance: A Jekyll and Hyde Play.  Embodying Dr. Jekyll/Mr. Hyde is South Florida's premiere physical comedian, Tom Wahl.  After years of perfecting his comedic skills with multiple productions nationwide of Sheer Madness, Mr. Wahl steps into the role of the strange doctor with tongue firmly planted in cheek. 

Said Clive Cholerton, Caldwell Theatre's Artistic Director and director of Chemical Imbalance, "I continue to be in awe of how creative Tom is.  Just when I think he can't make me laugh any harder, I'm doubled over again, gasping for air". 

The cast of Chemical Imbalance is rounded out with South Florida's "Dream Team" of comedic talents, John Felix, Erin Joy Schmidt, Angie Radosh, Amy Elaine Anderson, Wynn Harmon, Lindsey Forgey, Laura Turnbull, and Tiffany-Leigh Moskow. 

Continued Cholerton, "It wasn't easy nailing down all these actors, but I think when they individually learned of the group we were putting together, each of them realized this would be an opportunity, unlike any other, to lift their collective comedic talents to new heights."  

Included in the creative comedic frivolity is Caldwell's design team of: Tim Bennett-scenic design, John D. Hall-lighting design, Alberto Arroyo-costume design, Deborah Veres-property design, Sean Lawson-sound design.  

Mr. Bennett said, "This is, without question, the most collaborative design team I have ever worked with.  To create this surreal world demanded that each of us be on the exact same page creatively and that we shared the same demented sense of humor."  

"At the end of the day," remarked Cholerton, "I simply want to give my audience an opportunity to forget about the recession, unemployment, and anything else troubling them.  I want them to laugh!"
