Dr. Jekyll & Mr. Hyde Set for Run at SoHo Playhouse
This comic adaptation won the 2018 Fringe Encore Series Outstanding Production Award.
SoHo Playhouse will present Burt Grinstead and Anna Stromberg's Dr. Jekyll & Mr. Hyde in a six-week run April 17-May 26, with opening night set for Sunday, April 28.
Dr. Jekyll & Mr. Hyde is described as follows: "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."
Grinstead and Stromberg will perform their own play, which was the winner of the 2018 Fringe Encore Series Outstanding Production Award, among other honors.
