The epic battle between good and evil takes to the stage in the closing show of Town’s 102nd season, Jekyll & Hyde: The Musical. Based on Robert Louis Stevenson’s classic tale, audiences will be enchanted by Frank Wildhorn’s and Leslie Bricusse’s score and mesmerized by the man that is both Dr. Henry Jekyll and Mr. Edward Hyde.
In the title role (or roles, perhaps) is Billy Bishop (Matilda, The Buddy Holly Story). As Jekyll, he is poised to unearth the science to solve some of mankind’s most challenging medical dilemmas. But upon rejection by the powers that be, he chooses to make himself the experiment and unleashes the maniacal Hyde. Further twisting the plot are two women in love with Jekyll/Hyde yet unknowing of his alter identity. *Ashley Alvarado (My Fair Lady, Mary Poppins) and +Alex Carrico, in her Town debut, take on the role of the trusting bride-to-be, Emma Carew. *Cortlin Collins (Bright Star, South Pacific) and +Hannah Thompson (Into the Woods, Broadway: Limited Exposure) play Lucy, a local lady of the night who is equally drawn to the madman.
The show’s score and story are in the capable hands of an impressive ensemble including Tom Baldwin, Bill Bentley, Adam Bigony, Jillian Bigony, Chauntel Bland, Hans Boeschen, Tyler Broughton, Brooke Buckner, Rosemary Buzzell, Lewis Causey, Jacob Cordes, Connor Etcheson, James Galluzzo, Sydney Glenn, Bianca Goodlet, Faith Kelly, Elizabeth Kinney, Corey Langley, Ian Neff, Tracy Steele, Leah Tudor, Bailey Weikel-Feekes, Liana Wiley and Steve Wrona.
