  • It's about time someone sent Mr. Hyde to kill Cats

    Oct 13, 2000 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Great music, impressive individual performances, interesting story
    Cons: David Hasselhoff as Dr. Jekyll/Mr. Hyde starting October 17th till the end of the year (pro?)

    Summary: Last night I saw a very special Broadway performance of Jekyll & Hyde. This was one of the last performances of Sebastian Bach in the leading role and his father and his 86-year old grandmother flew in from California for the show. If there ... read more

    Pros: Costumes,lighting, set design, music
    Cons: David Hasselhoff

    Summary: Before I begin, let me tell you about myself quickly. I am a senior in high school and I am very involved in theater. I plan to major in musical theater in college. Jekyll & Hyde, to me is the ultimate role. It is my dream role to play either in ... read more

  • Edge of My Seat Wonderful!!

    Mar 22, 2001 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Amazing acting. Tear-jerking, gripping show.
    Cons: There were some great songs cut out of the original script.

    Summary: When I entered the Plymoth Theatre, I didn't know what to expect of this show. By the end of the first song, I was in awe. The stage came alive with sights, sounds, and feeling. For the rest of the show, I was spellbound. I believe Jekyll ... read more

    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: David Hasselhoff is amusing to all!
    Cons: Then there's the actual show...

    Summary: As my review suggests, I am not a true fan of Jekyll and Hyde. On my last trip to NYC, I found the casting of David Hasselhoff as the title characters to be an unending source of amusement. There were the TV ads(it's no day at the beach), the ... read more

  • Interesting show, fantastic sets make a good show

    Oct 4, 2000 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Great sets, good special effects, and good casts made for an entertaining half-price afternoon.
    Cons: Was recommended to see it for Sebastian Bach, but he doesn't play Wed. & Sat. matinees

    Summary: Although I was disappointed by the absence of the star of the show, overall I had a good time at Jekyll and Hyde. While in New York, my father and I decided to meet his sister in town and catch a show. We had heard good things about former Skid Row ... read more

    Pros: energetic cast, incredible music, thought provoking story line...
    Cons: I have nothing negative to speak of about this show.

    Summary: I recently got the opportunity to see this FANTASTIC musical on Broadway. This was my second time seeing the show, so I knew how wonderful it would be. The music is composed by Frank Wildhorn, who has created songs for big time singers ... read more

    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Great music and plot. The stroy is wonderful.
    Cons: A pop nature.

    Summary: Jekyll and Hydes epic tale of the existence of good and evil is truly one of the best things running on Broadway. This show based on Robert Louis Stevenson's novel has stared many talents and been through many stages. The show's message, music and plot ... read more

    Pros: Just excellent!
    Cons: Not showing locally right now!

    Summary: I saw the original cast Jekyll and Hyde about four years ago and it was Fantastic. The special effects were superb. Linda Eder was excellent. Last year I saw Jekyll and Hyde again, but this time it was a touring company and again, it was ... read more

  • Great fun

    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Great Atmosphere
    Cons: None

    Summary: "Jekyll and Hyde" was one of the best plays I have ever seen. At first the play is confusing and hard to understand. You would not want anyone distracting you during the play or you may not get everything needed to understand. Otherwise ... read more

  • Worth seeing, but not my first choice.

    May 20, 2000 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Catchy Tunes
    Cons: If you thought Miss Saigon was overly melodramatic, you havent seen J&H!

    Summary: Jekyll and Hyde is not for everyone. The show centers around Dr Henry Jekyll who is consumed with finding a cure for the criminally insane and this feels that everyone posseses both Good and Evil. After Jekyll is denied money and subjects to test his ... read more

    Pros: Fabulously written and performed
    Cons: A little violent at times

    Summary: I had the pleasure of seeing this show, Jekyll & Hyde when it originally opened on Broadway. I live in southern New York, close to New York City, and do get so see broadway shows quite often (2-3 a year). I have NEVER been moved to tears during a ... read more

  • A good show for Broadway beginners

    Apr 19, 2000 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Coleen Sexton's magnificent voice, some good songs
    Cons: Wagner's voice is weak

    Summary: Jekyll and Hyde isn't the kind of show I would normally go see -- I much prefer dramas, although I have a weakness for Les Mis and Rent (Yes, I sense the contradiction, but I can't help it). But my in-laws made a rare trip to the East Coast, so my ... read more

    Pros: Great performances by cast, great music, good effects, good story, memorable scenes!
    Cons: Uncomfortable seats in theater

    Summary: This is the first Broadway show I have ever attended. I have attended shows in Toronto at Pantages (Phantom of the Opera), and I have attended several shows in Michigan, but I had never made the trip to New York to see a true Broadway show. I ... read more

    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Great acting, special effects, plot, and music
    Cons: none

    Summary: I saw Jekyll and Hyde one year ago. It was phenominal! The greatest musical I have seen thus far on Broadway, and believe me, I've seen a lot of musicals! It had a mysterious atmosphere to it, that left the audience in suspense and on the edge of their ... read more

  • Jeckyll and Hyde: At least buy the soundtrack

    Jan 27, 2000 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Beautiful heart-wrenching songs, very talented singers
    Cons: Not the best acting

    Summary: I have seen the musical Jeckyll and Hyde twice, and both times after leaving the theater, all I could say was "WOW!" It is very complex, and each time I went, I was struck by different aspects. The first time I saw it, I was struck by the ... read more

  • Dr. Jekyll will see you now.....

    Jan 11, 2000 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Front row seats....close enough to see their sweat!
    Cons: none

    Summary: I have never seen a bigger or longer standing ovation at a Broadway Show before. Maybe it was the bountiful performance given by Robert Evans himself. I have never felt more alive at a show before. Maybe it was because I was in the second row of the ... read more

  • Could have been better

    Jan 5, 2000 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Nice music and the main character, had a great voice
    Cons: Could have put more effort into the other characters

    Summary: I have seen quite a few plays and must say that the Jekyll and Hyde, even though a good play, does not compare to the great ones like Phantom of the Opera, Miss Saigon, Les Miserables and The Scarlet Pimpernel. The play is about famous story, ... read more

    Dec 29, 1999 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Good musical score and great characters
    Cons: "Good" and "Evil" need more differences

    Summary: As a fan of mainly Andrew Lloyd Webber's work, I was somewhat leary of seeing this musical version of Jekyll and Hyde. I thought for sure that this show couldn't have any artistic worth at all. I was pleasantly surprised to find that I was wrong. ... read more

    Summary: We've all heard the story of Jekyll and Hyde, right? Let me tell you it's just simply not the same on Broadway. This play combines wonderful acting and a superb plot that form a mixture that will keep you on the edge of your seat. Now please understand ... read more

  • Hyde is no Phantom

    Dec 18, 1999 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: good story
    Cons: expects alot of imagination from you

    Summary: After seeing Jekyll and Hyde, I was somewhat at a loos for how to feel. It was entertaining, but I felt it was too close to Phantom which I saw first. J+H's musical score was good but did not match up to the other. I had a difficult time accepting ... read more
