The production features music by Frank Wildhorn, book and lyrics by Leslie Bricusse and was conceived for the stage by Frank Wildhorn and Steve Cuden. A feature film based on the gothic musical is in process now with Bluestone Entertainment.
Jekyll & Hyde, a musical based on the novel “The Strange Case of Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde” by Robert Louis Stevenson, made its Broadway debut in 1997, when it received four Tony Award nominations, including one for Best Book of a Musical. The show was filmed live on stage for television in 2001, with David Hasselhoff in the title role. The stage production was revived on Broadway in 2013.
In the storyline, Dr. Jekyll unwittingly unleashes his dark side while trying to find a cure for his father’s mental illness and begins committing murder as Dr. Hyde.
