BASED ON THE STORY BY
ROBERT LOUIS STEVENSON
 

A true musical theatre phenomenon, "Jekyll & Hyde" attracted legions of loyal fans even before the show began its smash-hit Broadway run.

An evocative tale of the epic battle between good and evil, "Jekyll & Hyde" is based on Robert Louis Stevenson's classic story about a brilliant doctor whose experiments with human personality create a murderous counterpart. Convinced the cure for his father's mental illness lies in the separation of Man's evil nature from his good, Dr. Henry Jekyll unwittingly unleashes his own dark side, wreaking havoc in the streets of late 19th century London as the savage, maniacal Edward Hyde.

ABOUT THE DIRECTOR  Robert Cuccioli
earned a Drama Desk Award, an Outer Critics Circle Award and a Tony Award nomination in 1997 for his electrifying portrayal of the dual title roles, in the Broadway production of Jekyll & Hyde. Cuccioli began his directing career in 2001 with Jekyll & Hyde at The Westchester Broadway Theatre and is proud to return with this production. Other directing credits include The Glass Menagerie at The Shakespeare Theatre, and Jekyll & Hyde at Pittsburgh Civic Light Opera and Houstonís Theatre Under The Stars. Robert recently appeared on the hit USA Series, White Collar.
