Robert Cuccioli is probably known by most for his riveting, critically acclaimed TONY nominated performance as mad scientist, Dr. Jekyll, and his sinister alter ego, Mr. Hyde, in the Frank Wildhorn/Leslie Bricusse smash Broadway hit musical Jekyll & Hyde, for which he also received the Drama Desk, Outer Critics Circle, and FANY Awards for Outstanding Actor in a Musical. Prior to his successful Broadway run, he dazzled audiences, as well as critics alike across America in the show’s national touring company. He was honored with Chicago’s prestigious Joseph Jefferson Award during Jekyll & Hyde’s successful 34-week tour.
Prior to Jekyll & Hyde, in 1991 he garnered the Outer Critics Circle Award for Brilliant Ensemble Performance in the highly-acclaimed Kander and Ebb review, And The World Goes ‘Round. He followed that with the critically acclaimed, highly successful off-Broadway production of The Rothschilds where he played Nathan at Circle in the Square (downtown). Robert made his Broadway debut as Javert in Les Miserables in 1993, and after Jekyll & Hyde returned to Broadway again in 2012 lighting up the stage with his high-flying performance in the dual role of Dr. Norman Osborn/The Green Goblin in the rock musical Spider-Man: Turn Off The Dark. Off-Broadway, he was seen in Bikeman: A 911 Play, Joe Pintuaro’s Snow Orchid and in his critically acclaimed performance as Mayer Rothschild in the updated version of the classic Harnick/Bock musical Rothschild and Sons in 2015. Most recently, Robert starred as the title character in The New York Times’ Critic Pick, White Guy on the Bus at 59E59 Theatres and as Ben Rumson in the newly scripted version of Paint Your Wagon currently in development.
