The only thing gay men love more than a powerful superstar diva is a naughty, naughty girl. And in Deborah Cox, they get both as the R&B icon portrays the prostitute who inspires the experiments of a doctor with a murderous alternate personality.
And no, All My Children hasn’t been revived.
This most unusual love story is the smash Broadway hit Jekyll & Hyde, inspired by the well-loved novella The Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde by Robert Louis Stevenson. We’re pretty sure he never imagined that one day his tortured protagonist would be singing a duet with his alternate personality, but we’re pretty sure he’d approve.
Portraying Dr. Jekyll and his sinister counterpart is American Idol star and Tony Award nominee Constantine Maroulis, one of the biggest success stories from the popular singing competition thanks to a fruitful Broadway career. Sharing the stage and even a few musical numbers with Cox, he really gets to cut loose in this very meaty role.
Filled with darkness and extravagant spectacle, this re-imagined version of Jekyll & Hyde is finishing up its national tour before settling back on Broadway next year.
While everything else on stage this time of year is filled with holly-jolly sweetness, it’s nice to have one bloody great alternative.
