Readers all over the world have been thrilled by Robert Louis Stevenson's grisly tale of Dr. Jekyll & Mr. Hyde, the story of a dedicated and gentle physician who decides to be the guinea pig for his own research into the human soul, where he believes that good and evil strive for mastery. The potion he drinks releases the lustful and murderous Hyde, and the marvelously melodramatic tragedy is set in motion. Now the Sifria Theater in Ramat Gan presents the Israeli debut of the musical "Jekyll & Hyde" that premiered on Broadway in 1997, and has become popular throughout the world. The music and lyrics are by Frank Wildhorn and Leslie Bricusse and the book is by Wildhorn and Steve Cuden. The local production stars Itai Levy in the title roles, Sivan Tal as Lucy, the whore with a heart of gold, Claire ben David as Jekyll's fianc e, Emma and Noam Talmon as his loyal friend, John Utterson. Mitko Bosakov is the director, the award-winning Sasha Lisianski did the set and Eldar Groisman the choreography. The show runs at the Ramat Gan Theater through November 30 and from December 1-24.
