A smash hit musical, breathtaking at every moment!
on 18 February 2002
With a cast not so famous in the UK, "Jekyll and Hyde" may seem a musical to miss. However, with such an amazing score you cannot help but weep at the way in which the songs are put across to the audience. The chemistry among the main singers is evident with Christiane Noll and Robert Cuccioli portraying the couple in love superbly. Linda Eder plays the lost and disillusioned young soul with immense passion, performing some fantastically difficult songs with effortless ease.
It appears a challenge to put this story into song as well as on stage but all aspects of the novel are emphasized by the huge musical numbers: such as "Facade", "A New life", "Alive" and "This is the moment". Leslie Bricusse and Frank Wildhorn are to be congradulated on the breathtaking musical which will capture the heart of anyone who listens to it.
