The epic struggle between good and evil comes to life on stage in Lane Cove in February 2021 in the musical phenomenon, Jekyll and Hyde. Metro Theatre Arts describes Jekyll and Hyde the musical as a “dark, exciting and sensual production… a high-spirited exploration of the human psyche.”
Classic Story Comes to Life
Based on the classic story by Robert Louis Stevenson and featuring a thrilling score of pop-rock hits from multi-Grammy- and Tony-nominated Frank Wildhorn and double-Oscar- and Grammy-winning Leslie Bricusse, murder and chaos are pitted against love and virtue in this sweeping gothic musical.
A devoted man of science, Dr. Henry Jekyll is driven to find a chemical breakthrough that can solve some of mankind’s most challenging medical dilemmas. Rebuffed by the powers that be, he decides to make himself the subject of his own experimental treatments, accidentally unleashing his inner demons along with the man that the world would come to know as Mr. Hyde.
The production marks a return to the stage for Lane Cove Theatre Company whose other 2021 offerings will include Steel Magnolias, A Streetcar Named Desire and Hercules, the Christmas Panto!
