J&H Resurrected!

Early rumors are swirling of a new revival of the Frank Wildhorn mediocre hit Jekyll and Hyde’s return to Broadway. The musical which had a history of throwing in random “stars” into the mix after opening would need a severe makeover to gain success. Perhaps the 2006 concept album of the musical with a rock score will be included. I would go even further and modernize it, set it in New York, and have it star Adam Pascal as the title character with Kate Shindle and Mara Davi as Lucy and Emma respectively. And perhaps go even FURTHER and have John Gallagher Jr. as Utterson. Wild? I know. But leave it to Wildhorn to come up with wild ideas!
