Musical Theatre Review’s official photographer Roy Tan offers a gallery of brand new images to mark this week’s official opening at The Old Vic of Drew McOnie’s new dance thriller Jekyll & Hyde. The show, which has been devised, directed and choreographed by McOnie, will play a very limited run until Saturday (28 May).
Inspired by Robert Louis Stevenson’s classic tale of the ultimate split personality The Strange Case of Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde, Jekyll & Hyde has been specially commissioned by The Old Vic as part of its new dance collaboration with The McOnie Company, led by associate artist McOnie. The show has music by Grant Olding.
The cast is headed by Daniel Collins (Show Boat, The Car Man) as Dr Jekyll, while Tim Hodges (Making Midnight, Edward Scissorhands) takes on the role of Mr Hyde. The cast also includes Ashley Andrews (Drunk, Wicked); Joao Carolino (The Sound of Music, Waterbabies); Carrie Taylor Johnson (Nutcracker!, Swan Lake); Anabel Kutay (The Lorax, Drunk); Ebony Molina (The Lorax, Singin’ in the Rain); Rachel Muldoon (Notre Dame de Paris, Wicked); Freya Rowley (Tarzan the Musical, Cats); Alexzandra Sarmiento (In the Heights, A Chorus Line); Barnaby Thompson (Elf The Musical, Oklahoma!); and Jason Winter (White Christmas, Matilda).
Simon Hardwick is the show’s associate director, with design by Soutra Gilmour, lighting by Richard Howell and sound design by Sebastian Frost.
