Jekyll and Hyde The Musical
Broadway Musicals DVD
BM01 Broadway Musicals DVD - David Hasselhoff - Jekyll and Hyde The Musical - Broadway Musicals DVD - The longest-running show in the history of Broadway's Plymouth Theatre, Jekyll and 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. I am a major fan of the Jekyl and Hyde story, as well as the musical and let me tell you, that performance by David Hasselhoff was pretty damn good in my opinion. He gave it his absolute all, and impressed me which is not easy. I think people are a lot harder on him because of his past in the 80's and early 90's which makes him an easy target. All I'm gonna say is unless you can do it better than perhaps you should ease up. I personally loved it and would highly recommend it. Just remember when you watch it don't watch it with the notion that David Hasselhoff is in it so therefore it's stupid. Instead, objectively, just give it a chance. Much has been made of the fact that TV star David Hasselhoff was playing the title roles in JEKYLL AND HYDE, the hit Broadway musical based on the classic horror story of the doctor who brings out his evil self through the use of chemicals. Some critics thought he was a lightweight and a stiff pretty boy, however they seem a little off the mark on this one. Aside from the occasionally odd pop-stylings in his singing and a touch of hamminess as Hyde, Hasselhoff does a fairly solid job. He holds his own quite nicely in what, despite his top billing, turns out to be a well-balanced production. Opera singer George Merritt is quite sympathetic as Jekyll's friend and lawyer, Utterson, although he doesn't get to show off his voice much in mainly a character role. Barrie Ingham provides warmth as Sir Danvers Carew, while Andrea Rivette is a winsome Emily. While not on a par as Linda Eder, who created the role, Coleen Sexton makes a sexy turn as the ill-fated Lucy. The rest of the cast is just as solid, handling their songs with skill. The 10 camera set-up does a wonderful job of bringing the production up close, as well showing off some of the fast-paced staging. Robert Louis Stevenson's classic story is not your typical plotline for musical theatre, but JEKYLL AND HYDE is a fairly successful attempt, and a top-notch DVD capture of a Broadway show. Definitely recommended for fans of the musical.
