  Dr. Jeklyy and Mr. Hyde at LA Gay and Lesbian Center

Dr. Jeklyy and Mr. Hyde

LA Gay and Lesbian Center
1125 North McCadden Place Los Angeles

Written and performed by Burt Grinstead and Anna Stromberg, Dr. Jekyll & Mr. Hyde is a dizzying, fast-paced, horrifying and hilarious extravaganza that leaves the audience questioning its own morality. Based on The Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde, the classic novella by Robert Louis Stevenson, this new adaptation takes place on 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. 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.

Stage and Cinema - Recommended

"...Burt Grinstead and Anna Stromberg’s take on Robert Louis Stevenson’s The Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde switches between comedic farce and serious scenes just as slickly as Jekyll, the affable, handsome physician, becomes Hyde, a maniacal, marauding murderer. Blessedly not as silly and madcap as the stage adaptation of Hitchcock’s The 39 Steps, this never-lagging, 80-minute version pares down the 1886 Gothic novella, liberally swapping things around but still focusing on the central tale of a scientific experiment regarding good and evil that goes horribly wrong."

Stage Raw - Highly Recommended

"...A two-person show adapted from a renowned work of Gothic literature might easily be a disaster, yet it is always those ideas at risk of being abysmal that have the potential to be most extraordinary."
