Written by and starring Burt Grinstead and Anna Stromberg, this bare-bones Dr. Jekyll & Mr. Hyde is a dizzying, fast-paced, horrifying extravaganza that leaves you splitting ribs as you question your own morality. Based on the classic novella, this original 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.

SoHo Playhouse's producing artist director, Darren Lee Cole said "We are thrilled with the success of this past year's Fringe Encore Series, we introduced award-winning shows from all over the world to a savvy New York audience. But Burt and Anna's Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde was easily one of the best. It is one of the largest crowd-pleasers we have ever had at the Fringe Encores Series. It's smart, fast-paced and wonderfully funny. We are excited to bring Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde back to the SoHo Playhouse for a six-week run. It's a must see for audiences of all ages."
