Los Angeles Times - Not Recommended

"...But like Dr. Jekyll scrambling to undo the chemical formula that has turned him into a part-time lunatic, Calhoun lacks the fundamental ingredients to pull off the transformation. Which is to say he’s stuck with Leslie Bricusse’s book and lyrics and Frank Wildhorn’s music, and not even the most resourceful chef can make a gourmet meal when bound to a chain restaurant recipe."

Variety - Somewhat Recommended

"...Before Jekyll undergoes his first transmogrification, Maroulis sings “This Is the Moment,” and the orchestration requires that he sing it full tilt. But he’s been singing full tilt for two or three songs before this. In “Rock of Ages,” Maroulis offered up this kind of vocal overkill as parody. Here, when his Jekyll nails every high note to the back wall of the huge Pantages, there’s no place left for him to go as Hyde."

LA Weekly - Recommended

"...This musical thriller, with book and lyrics by Leslie Bricusse and music by Frank Wildhorn, never rises above the level of melodrama, but it’s thumping good melodrama."

Backstage - Somewhat Recommended

"...The show feels like a Victorian-themed pop concert rather than musical theater. The multiple high-note hitting, overly amplified stuff that reality shows such as “American Idol” have made popular to a whole new and infinitely more forgiving audience, is the attraction. Purists will be disappointed; MTV and “Glee” audiences will jump to their feet."

"...These extra-amplified distractions of nifty high-tech theatrical effects (oooh, look at those giant test tubes with color-changing bubbly water!), more modernized pop/rock orchestrations, and ovation-worthy, slam-dunk singing—the efforts of which, I must stress again, I do genuinely appreciate—all can’t quite erase how frustratingly flawed this show has always been and perhaps always will be."

"...These two performances are the reasons to see “Jekyll & Hyde.” As for the rest – well, you can marvel as you watch that they’ve now had 23 years to work out the kinks. Some things are unfixable."

Neon Tommy - Somewhat Recommended

"...As a show with music and fun visual distractions, “Jekyll & Hyde” fills the bill. As a horror musical, it is not worthy of the Pantages and certainly not worthy of Broadway."

"...The production design by Tobin Ost is spellbinding without going over the top, and the performances by everyone involved are pitch perfect."

"...This show is graphic in the sense of theatrical murders and visual representation of Mr. Hyde’s victims, but I think young adult audience will enjoy the rock stylized versions of the songs and visually compelling sets."
