What powerful performances from Constantine Maroulis and Deborah Cox! This play is haunting and explosive!
The good doctor – Dr. Henry Jekyll – starts out determined to solve intense psychiatric medical problems and when he is denied approval by his own hospital review board; he realizes he has to be his own experiement. As the story unfolds, we witness Dr. Jekyll fall from grace and morph himself into the maniacal Edwared Hyde, a revengeful serial killer.
Dr. Jekyll is soon to be married to Emma Carew (played by Teal Wicks). At the start Emma feels confident about her marital relationship with Henry but starts to question his erratic behavior.
Edward Hyde – Dr. Jekyll’s split personalitiy – is attracted to – abusive to – and addicted to – prostitute, Lucy Harris (outstandingly played by Deborah Cox). As we watch the downward drift of Dr. Jekyll into the murdering monster Edward Hyde, the strength of the acting and singing becomes intense. I sat in awe, as I’m sure others in the audience were as well. The transformation journey of heartbreak, abuse, deceit and revenge weighs heavily on both Emma and Lucy as Jekyll/Hyde spirals downward.
Every emotion is brought forth in the musical rendition – their beautiful voices are breathtaking and mesmerizing.
Treat yourself – this limited engagement is a must see!
