Nominated for six Hollywood Fringe Festival Awards including Best Comedy, winner of the 2Cents Theatre Award for Distinctive Voices, and winner of the SoHo Playhouse (NYC) Fringe Encore Series Award as well as the Outstanding Production Award! Dr. Jekyll & Mr. Hyde, written and performed by Burt Grinstead and Anna Stromberg, is a dizzying, fast-paced, horrifying extravaganza that leaves you splitting ribs as you question your own morality.
Based on the classic novella, this original adaptation takes you to the dismal streets of London in the 1860s, where societal pressures silence a gentle doctor’s questions about the nature of morality. As the pressure intensifies, Dr. Jekyll takes matters into his own hands. However, things take an eerie turn when his experiment takes on a life of its own. Will his efforts save the world, or will they destroy all that he holds dear? After all, the road to hell is paved with good intentions.
The award-winning production has been called “Snappy and silly. It’s a highly innovative work, impressive not only for its delightfully morbid sense of humor and the versatility of the acting but for its meticulous marriage of theme and aesthetics.” StageRaw; “The spectacular performances, clever production, and a timeless message about the human condition, Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde is just what the doctor ordered.” StageandCinema; “There Is Never A Dull Moment” - Haineshisway.Com; “The two stars are not only extremely talented, but the audience can tell that they are deeply invested in what they’ve created and want to share their enjoyment.” - Media-Geeks.Com; “The energy between the two performers makes the air tingle.” - Encore Magazine; “The battle of good vs. evil has rarely been so entertaining.” - Star News; “As a piece of theatre, it is fascinating, invigorating and challenging to the deepest parts of our very sense of self.” - Encore Magazine; “This is my favorite kind of theater –physical, inventive, ingenious and funny. Burt Grinstead and Anna Stromberg’s comedic adaptation of Robert Louis Stevenson’s ‘The Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde,’ is theatrical catnip – you just can’t get enough of it.“ - stagebiz.com; “If you love to laugh at well parodied literary classics, as I do, then this is a play for you.” - Nytheatre-Wire.Com; “A wonderful, creative, joyful, fast-paced, delight of a show.” - Thefrontrowcenter.Com; “It’s action-packed, and you feel like you’re watching a theatrical blockbuster.” - stagebiz.com; “It’s smart, funny and surprisingly likable, complete with dark humor, quick pacing and a very high level of innovation. Grinstead and Stromberg have made good use of the original work in order to provide the audience with both laughs and gasps.” - newyorkarts.net.
