Well, the $39.95 Tix from Travelzoo were a steal for the seats we had on Wed. night for the Jekyll & Hyde Musical with Constantine Maroulis and Deborah Cox (<— she’s the reason we went).
J&H is the story of a mad scientist (Constantine Maroulis) who decides to try a Good (Jekyll) v. Evil (Hyde) experiment with himself. The evil side of him takes a liking to the prostitute, Lucy (Deborah Cox) who by far steals the show vocally!
Have to admit, the show started off kind of slow, plus we were confused as we chose not to look up the plot before going. The singing didn’t get good until Deborah Cox came in the picture, bringing soul to what had thus far been a very dry performance. A close second, vocally, was Jekyll’s wife (played by Teal Wicks).
When Jekyll FINALLY turned to Hyde (after intermission). I woke up (literally). He was a crazy dude… scary even. Totally stole the show! That Constantine fella can really sing when he turns evil!
Pros: Interesting story line. Deborah Cox was amazing!
Cons: Starts off a little slow. Oh, the bathroom line at intermission was crazy long…
