I am a Jekkie, and I have to admit, this is the BEST production I have seen of Jekyll & Hyde outside of the Broadway version. How imaginative and sleek! The cast was so talented and the voices were phenomenal! I couldnt have asked for a better version. It almost felt like the Sweeney Todd that came to A.C.T. a few years back with its inventiveness and taut direction. My party and I thoroughly enjoyed this production and were going to keep our eyes open on this fabulous new theatre company!

Wow! Saw the show last night and was blown away! The cast are all powerhouse voices! Great rendition of a musical thats so well-known and works a lot better in an intimate space. I loved every minute of it. I laughed. I cried. It reminded me of why I was a RENT-head and I saw the original back in October. These guys are the next best thing! The guy who played Roger had this gigantic voice that could blow the rough off the theatre! Do not miss it. My only gripe was the band was a little loud, either than that, this show was impressive. Kudos!

RE:4 Talented Guys!
What a great show! I know that this was a huge flop on Broadway but I think The Royal Underground produced a definitive version of this show: timely, poignant and raw. Whats smart is that it was mounted in a tiny space and the four actors just shine. Smartly directed and evenly paced, people in SF seriously cant miss this show!
