Robert Cuccioli is known by many 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 shared 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). In 2015, he revisited the show, this time as Mayer Rothschild in the newly-minted critically acclaimed revisal Rothschild and Sons at The York Theatre. That production was brought to the off-West End London stage in 2018 where Robert garnered an Offie nomination for "Leading Actor in a Musical". 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. Until COVID-19 rocked the nation and the world he was set to open off-Broadway in the Irish Repertory Theatre's production of A Touch of the Poet starring as Con Melody. He was seen the previous 2019 off-Broadway season as Caesar in the acclaimed production of Caesar & Cleopatra (NY Times Critic's Pick), and in the Red Bull Theatre's production of The White Devil (NY Times Critic's Pick).
In 2019 he filmed the dramatic short, Columbus on Trial, and is soon scheduled to begin production on the Web Series, Tradecraft: On The Run in 2021.
