From the last Journal of Dr. Henry Jekyll
A few moments after Dr. Henry Jekyll makes this journal entry, audiences are introduced to one of the most terrifying villains ever written for a musical: that embodiment of evil, Mr Hyde.
Moving through the streets of Victorian London, Mr. Hyde reeks havoc on the citizens in his bloodthirsty quest for revenge, while his alter-ego, Dr. Jekyll tries to regain control of his soul on his descent into madness. Based on the classic novel by Robert Louis Stevenson, JEKYLL & HYDE is a rarity: a good, old-fashioned horror story that makes a good, old-fashioned musical.
With the international hit "This Is The Moment," as its centerpiece, the score, with music by Frank Wildhorn (The Civil War) and lyrics by Leslie Bricusse, throbs with the pulse of today, while evoking another time and place.
