and Hyde" in Epic Struggle at
MCCC's Kelsey Theatre Sept. 18-27
Jekyll wages a fierce battle with his alter-ego, Edward Hyde, in
the haunting musical, "Jekyll and Hyde," at Mercer
County Community College's Kelsey Theatre. Presented by Cheng/Ferrara
Productions, dates and show times are: Fridays, Sept. 18 and 25
at 8 p.m.; Saturdays, Sept. 19 and 26 at 8 pm.; and Sundays, Sept.
20 and 27 at 2 p.m. Kelsey Theatre is located on the college's West
Windsor campus at 1200 Old Trenton Road. A reception with the
cast and crew follows the opening night performance on Sept. 18.
Based on the 1886 tale by Robert Louis Stevenson, "Jekyll and
Hyde" explores man's dual capacity for both good and evil.
With the intention of purifying his good side from his bad, the
well-liked and respectable Dr. Jekyll creates a potion that unleashes
the sinister, depraved Mr. Hyde. At ever increasing risk, Jekyll
continues his ghastly foray into the darkest corners of human nature.
Which of his personalities will emerge victorious? With music by
Frank Wildhorn and lyrics by Leslie Bricusse, the show opened on
Broadway in 1997 and ran until 2001, and is the longest running
show in the history of the Plymouth Theatre.
