Jekyll & Hyde National Tour to thrill Oklahoma audiences
American Idol star and Tony® Award nominee Constantine Maroulis joins with Grammy® Award nominee and R&B superstar Deborah Cox to inject new life into the classic tale of good and evil, Jekyll & Hyde.
After four thrilling, chilling years on Broadway and multiple world-wide tours, this dark and dangerous love story returns in a stunning new pre-Broadway production that includes all the classic songs (This is the Moment, A New Life, Someone Like You) that first grabbed audiences by the throat and transformed Jekyll & Hyde into a theatrical phenomenon.
Jekyll & Hyde will return to Broadway in spring 2013 following this limited 25-week National Tour.
Conceived for the stage by Tony® and Grammy Award nominee Frank Wildhorn and Steve Cuden, the four time Tony® Award Nominated musical Jekyll & Hyde features a book & lyrics by two-time Oscar winner, Emmy winner and four-time Tony® Award Nominee Leslie Bricusse, music by Frank Wildhorn, and will be directed and choreographed by Tony® Award Nominee Jeff Calhoun.
The musical is based on the acclaimed novella The Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde by Robert Louis Stevenson, about a London doctor who accidentally unleashes his evil alternate personality in his quest to cure his father’s mental illness.
Also starring in the production will be Teal Wicks (Wicked) as Emma Carew, Laird Mackintosh (Mary Poppins) as John Utterson and Richard White (Most Happy Fella) as Sir Danvers Carew.
