As Matthew Warchus’s inaugural season at the Old Vic Theatre continues, something very different heads to the Lambeth venue in the spring.
Jekyll And Hyde won’t simply be the classic story retold onstage, it is billed as a dance thriller and one that will take Robert Louis Stevenson’s classic and reinterpret it for a modern audience in London. As part of a special dance project between the Old Vic and The McOnie Company, producers will attempt to turn the story on its head and provide something truly innovative.
Jeckyll And Hyde is, of course, the classic story of split personality. It focuses on the lawyer Gabriel John Utterson as he notices something strange about his friend Dr Henry Jekyll. Or should that be Edward Hyde?
The original novella was published back in 1886 and it has an iconic status in modern society. It has been referenced, spoofed and adapted on countless occasions over the years.
But this new dance version has been put together by the renowned choreographer Drew McOnie , who has provided the choreography for shows like In The Heights at the King’s Cross Theatre in recent times. His other credits in that position include Hairspray on a UK tour and Bugsy Malone at London’s Lyric Hammersmith.
Matthew Warchus’s inaugural season has shaped up to be an unmissable array of shows, with Rob Brydon in Future Conditional also appearing alongside The Master Builder. It is a great time to head south of the River Thames and witness some great stage productions.
Jeckyll And Hyde runs at the Old Vic Theatre in the spring of 2016.
