Blanket Fort Entertainment's DR. JEKYLL AND MR. HYDE Opens Tonight At Soho Playhouse

The Soho Playhouse's production of Blanket Fort Entertainment's New York premiere of DR. JEKYLL & MR. HYDE opens tonight at The Soho Playhouse (15 Vandam Street) in New York City, as part of the Fringe Encore Series. The show, written by Burt Grinstead and Anna Stromberg, and directed by Anna Stromberg, runs Off-Broadway from December 6 - 15.

Based on Robert Louis Stevenson's classic novella, this original, comedic adaptation takes you to the dismal streets of London in the 1860s, where societal pressures silence a gentle doctor's questions about the nature of morality. As the pressure intensifies, Dr. Jekyll takes matters into his own hands. However, things take an eerie turn when his experiment takes on a life of its own. Will his efforts save the world, or will they destroy all that he holds dear? After all, the road to hell is paved with good intentions.

Blanket Fort Entertainment's world premiere of DR. JEKYLL & MR. HYDE was presented as part of The Hollywood Fringe Festival, where it was nominated for six Hollywood Fringe Festival Awards including Best Comedy, winner of the 2CentsTheatre Award for Distinctive Voices, and winner of the Soho Playhouse Fringe Encore Series Award.

DR. JEKYLL & MR. HYDE was praised by Stage Raw as "a highly innovative work, impressive for its delightfully morbid sense of humor and the versatility of the acting." Broadway World said, "Both actors display a great deal of charm, courage and panache. Stromberg is nothing short of amazing." Encore Magazine described the show as "fascinating, invigorating and challenging," and Media Geeks raved, "the two stars are extremely talented." Stage and Cinema admired the "spectacular performances and clever production" and said, "Dr. Jekyll & Mr. Hyde is just what the doctor ordered."
