Editorial Reviews

The longest-running show in the history of Broadway's Plymouth Theatre, Jekyll & Hyde: The Musical brings new life to Robert Louis Stevenson's classic story of romance and the epic battle between good and evil. A whirlwind odyssey pitting man against himself is set in motion when the brilliant Dr. Jekyll's medical experiment backfires, giving life to his evil alter ego, Edward Hyde. The show won a legion of repeat visitors (dubbed by the press as "Jekkies") and spawned hit songs on the pop charts with "Someone Like You" and "This Is the Moment."

Format: DVD
I'm suspecting that there are two types of people who are approaching this DVD, a filmed version of the stage production of "Jekyll & Hyde". One, someone familiar with the show--perhaps saw it and liked it or has the soundtrack--and wants to check out this variation. Or two, someone discovering it anew. It tempts me to write two reviews because while I love "Jekyll & Hyde", it's slightly unfortunate that this is the production most people will get a chance to judge.

So let me preface this by saying that I really am a fan of this show. Some people consider "Jekyll" sort of a "Phantom-lite". I, myself, have never been the biggest supporter of "Phantom of the Opera". It's fine, full of bombast, but hardly the revolutionary experience that people give it credit for. "Jekyll" does play to similar themes, but has a stronger overall soundtrack. Instead of a couple of showstoppers like "Phantom", "Jekyll" is filled with memorable power ballads. Not the most complicated show musically, it is very accessible. And when you have great singers, these simpler and emotionally charged songs become pop opera and quite moving.

So, without hesitation, I recommend the original Broadway Cast recording!!! Robert Cuccioli, Linda Eder and Christiane Noll are superb. You couldn't hope for better.

But here's the problem with this DVD, it's not this great cast--NO, the star is David Hasselhoff. So you see my problem, don't you? Look, I'm not going to be unkind--it's an easy target. Let's just say this. If you're a fan of the show, he doesn't completely ruin it. And it's not like there are any other versions to add to your collections. If you are new to the show, I'm still recommending it provisionally. I wish there were another option. If you like the show, though--and I think you will--please rush over and buy the 1997 Cast recording. Treat yourself to how "Jekyll & Hyde" should really sound. KGHarris, 10/06.

I had three recurring thoughts while watching "Jekyll & Hyde: The Musical." First, I wished they would slow down the tempo a bit, or at least run an announcement that the production was being compressed for time. I know the attention span of the modern audience grows less each year but the increased tempo bothered me on most of the songs and took away my enjoyment from my favorite piece in the show, the quartet "Your Work--And Nothing More." Second, whatever his vocal limitations, I was impressed to see how David Hasselhoff affected the transformation back and forth between Jekyll and Hyde through body posture and the use of his flowing mane of curly hair (and without makeup). Third, I was liked the singing voices of both good girl Andrea Rivette and bad girl Coleen Sexton, both in their duet "In His Eyes" and separately. Agreed, Sexton is not Linda Eder, but then who is this side of Streisand? (Besides, how many singers have their husband writing songs for their voice in shows on Broadway?).
Of course, in my experience of musicals I have never actually seen a Broadway show on Broadway. When your main diet of such things are touring companies or productions in L.A. or the Twin Cities you become accustomed to hearing voices other than the original (the exception would be seeing Michael Crawford perform "Phantom of the Opera" in L.A.).
As for Hasselhoff's performance of the show's anthem, "This is the Moment," my complaint remains that the song simply does not fit the story (a truth proven every time someone uses it for their ice skating routine). After all, nobody who sees this show is going to be unfamiliar with the story: we know what is going to happen when Dr. Jekyll takes his injection. The result is that "This is the Moment" provides the worst sort of unintentional irony.

Let me preface this by admitting that I have a strong dislike of David Hasselhoff so I find it impossible to write a review without some bias. Forgive me.

I love Jekyll and Hyde. I have seen it on stage numerous times, and I listen to the soundtrack frequently (original Broadway cast). Stevenson's story is brilliant and timeless. The story as a musical works well and is clever. This version, however, does not work.

Let me start with the star, David Hasselhoff. Vocally, he can handle the part. He is not a fabulous singer, but he sounds pretty good most of the time. It is his acting that cannot handle the part. He is rather stiff most of the time then tries to emote by pounding his chest or raising his arms in the air which of course just looks apish. The supposed climatic song, "This is the Moment" is very anticlimatic in this production. Hasselhoff seems to be concentrating on just singing the words. He does do surprising well with "Confrontation" which I imagine is a difficult song to perform as he transforms back and forth between two characters.

Hasselhoff is not the only less-than-stellar performer. None of the lead parts are played by anyone of great talent.

I was disappointed in this production. Jekyll & Hyde is a great musical when performed by a great cast. Unfortunately no greatness was present in this production.

Format: DVD
I've seen Jekyll and Hyde twice (both times on tour), and I have to say that the strength of the piece obviously relies solely on the strength of the actor/singer in the title roles. Sadly, in this version, the performance given by Hasselhoff is, to put it mildly, poor. The roles come across so much more powerfully if they are sung by someone who has had musical training (at least enough to be able to sing the score of a Broadway musical). It's too bad that the producers chose to tape this performance instead of a performance starring the original cast. Though there may not have been big names, they probably would have had more people willing to pay for the pay-per-view and DVD/VHS versions, especially due to the popularity of the original Lucy, Linda Eder.
