About this show

This classic tale set in London in 1885 comes to life through gorgeous love songs and powerful production numbers. A brilliant doctor, Dr. Henry Jekyll, is driven by compassion for the unfortunate and love for his mentally ill father, combined with his conflicting feelings for his devoted fiancee', Emma, and Lucy, a prostitute who has fallen in love with him because of his kindness to her. He fights to find a chemical solution to madness, fueled by his theory about the duality of good and evil that resides in man, Henry is shut out by the scientific community and is left with no alternative but to experiment on himself. When the experiment backfires Henry Jekyll inadvertently gives life to Edward Hyde, his evil alter ego, a murderous being who will let loose a reign of terror on the city of London and those who had ridiculed Jekyll's research.
