Jekyll and Hyde

Book and lyrics by David Crane and Marta Kauffman, music by Michael Skloff: based on The Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr Hyde by Robert Louis Stevenson

Promenade Theatre Off-Broadway - 25 June, 1990 (45 perfs)  


Robert Louis Stevenson's gothic thriller is transformed into a superb contemporary musical about a teenage chemistry wiz who creates a substance which changes him from a nerd into the coolest kid in school. When craving for the substance takes over his life, he decides to stop using it, cannot, and realizes that he needs help. This powerful musical examines the alarming issues of substance abuse and the critical role that self-esteem plays in the deadly drama of addiction.
