  1. After watching Jekyll & Hyde the musical at the Egyptian theater, my hopes for a great performance soon diminished. Being my favorite musical, I must say that the feedback through the microphones and the staff overriding the cast members microphones was only the beginning of a bad production. The two talented ladies playing Lucy and Emma was the only reason I didn’t ask for a refund! Sorry Egyptian theater and dark horse company, not at all your best work. I left wanting more, feeling as if the emotion of the play was left behind. the transformation should have been heartfelt and powerful, and for me it was dry and dull. Sad night at the Egyptian theater as my favorite musical was not at all what it should have been.
