Jekyll and Hyde

This autumn Tom returns to English Theatre Frankfurt, where he has directed Strangers on a Train, Other Desert Cities, The Glass Menagerie and The Picture of Dorian Gray, to direct a gothic musical thriller with a music and lyrics by Frank Wildhorn and book by Leslie Bricusse

An evocative tale of the epic battle between good and evil, Jekyll & Hyde is based on Robert Louis Stevenson’s classic story about a brilliant mind gone horrifically awry.

In an attempt to cure his ailing father’s mental illness by separating “good” from “evil” in the human personality, talented physician Dr. Jekyll inadvertently creates an alternate demonic personality, dubbed Mr. Hyde, who wreaks murderous havoc on the city of London. A true musical theatre phenomenon, Jekyll & Hyde is pure, pulse-pounding theatre, with a lush, romantic pop score hailed as a modern classic even before the show began its smash-hit Broadway run.
