Dr Jekyll is keen to perform experiments to look into manipulating the good and bad halves of the human condition. When he presented his ideas to the board of the hospital they are rejected on ethical grounds. Undeterred he decides to continue however he consumes the potions himself rather than using a patient. The result is Mr Hyde who has a very different personality to the compassionate Dr Jekyll. In addition, Dr Jekyll is getting engaged and so he heads off on his stag do.
This is a shame as there were some fine performances trying to deliver the mediocre writing. Jekyll and Hyde is a difficult musical to love I'm afraid.
