Jekyll & Hyde

Jekyll & Hyde: On Stage At COS

by Terrance Mc Arthur

In 1886, Robert Louis Stevenson wrote a short novella, The Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde, about a man who was beside himself, couldn’t get along with himself, was chemically split into two personalities: a good doctor, and a murderous, licentious monster. It was inspired by the 1700s figure William Brodie: cabinetmaker and city councilman by day, burglar and gang leader by night. According to legend, Stevenson wrote it in less than a week, burned the manuscript, then reconstructed it over the next two months. Jekyll and Hyde have become society’s shorthand for a person with two conflicting sides to his character.

Jekyll & Hyde Revival: Theatre Review

by Jessica Ham

Theater has always been my passion. I can’t remember a time when I didn’t love musicals. I love comedies, dramas, dramedies; you name it, I love it. But this past weekend I saw a musical like no other. That musical was Jekyll & Hyde at the Pantages Theater in Los Angeles. Now, Jekyll & Hyde has been a musical since the 90s but the one I saw was a new revival. I love the original version but in my opinion, the revival is even better.

Jekyll & Hyde Presented by CMT

by Lorie Lewis Ham

I never stop being amazed by the level of talent that this Valley has to offer and I hope I never will. However, until seeing Spring Awakening presented by CMT (Children's Musical Theaterworks) in Fresno this summer I had never seen a CMT show. After seeing Jekyll & Hyde this weekend, I have now been blown away twice in a row and have to say why did I wait so long to discover them?
