This gothic musical, based on a Robert Louis Stevenson classic, is a tale about the battle between good and evil.  Dr. Henry Jekyll unwittingly unleashes his own dark side, wreaking havoc as the savage, maniacal Mr. Edward Hyde.  The story takes place on the streets of London in 1888, during the same year as the grisly reign of Jack the Ripper. The majority of the story is told through the rock & roll score's songs, with musical direction by Dr. David Cody.

Martinez points out: "This is not a show for children."
