Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde - 1998 - Milburn, NJ (Regional)

Based on the novella The Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde by Robert Louis Stevenson

In Jeffrey Hatcher’s retelling of "Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde," transformation takes on a whole new meaning. The classic Robert Louis Stevenson tale still retains the central conflicts of good vs. evil and civilization vs. savagery, but in Hatcher’s version, the menacing Mr. Hyde is played by four actors — including one female. Reviewed as “a dark and disturbing story liberally peppered with humor,” this tale takes a look at the evil that lurks in the hearts of men.

It's #savage season at MacTheatre, the Fine Arts Academy of McCallum High School. #Savage feels firmly planted in 2019 as that word, as every day vernacular, feels like new-fangled millennial vocabulary. But savage essentially means impossibly confident, self-actualized, and fearless disregard for societal norms. There's plenty of savagery in JEKYLL & HYDE.

In Jekyll vs Hyde, a free musical comedy now playing at the Voodoo Rooms, Laurence is a serious composer, working on a one-man musical adaptation of Stevenson's classic work.  It's high art he believes, much elevated by the noble tradition of sock puppetry enabling him to play all of the parts.  His wife and disgruntled stage hand, Lindsay thinks it's all a bit boring, especially compared to the cheesy, bells-and-whistles, Broadway-bound adaptation they had crafted together once upon a time.
