‘Jekyll & Hyde’ Gets An Opening Date on Broadway and Possible Future Film?

  • Pin It

jekyll-and-hydeJekyll & Hyde, the Frank Wildhorn musical that’s now on tour across the country, has set it’s first preview and opening night dates for its Broadway return.

Following the end of the tour, the show, starring Tony Award nominee Constantine Maroulis in the dual title role of ‘Dr. Henry Jekyll’ & ‘Edward Hyde’ and Grammy-nominated R&B superstar Deborah Cox as ‘Lucy’ and Teal Wicks as ‘Emma Carew’, will have a 13-week run at the Marquis Theatre.

Previews begin on Friday, April 5th and opening night will be on Thursday, April 18th.

And in other J&K news, the New York Times is reporting that producer Mike Medavoy is looking to get the film rights to the musical in hopes that it will be released in 2015. 

I saw the touring show in San Diego and while it wasn’t awful, I walked away thinking, “What the hell was that?” Teal Wicks was great and Cox was fine but the whole show relies on the acting of Maroulis and it just wasn’t there. Granted, I saw the show early on in its tour so maybe he’s gotten better but from what I saw, his performance was just either high or low; screaming and laughing and walking like he had polio as Hyde and wimpy when he was the good Dr.
