Weekend watch: ‘Jekyll & Hyde: The Musical’ at The Stage at Island ParkTonight-Sunday
Robert Louis Stevenson’s “Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde” has received a number of reworkings since the story was first published in 1886.
The most notable take on the good doctor and his bad side was the mid-1990s “Jekyll & Hyde: The Musical,” which featured mercurial stars Sebastian Bach and David Hasselhoff playing the split personalities. Craig Ellingson puts on the top hat and mad demeanor of the title character(s) in Music Theatre Fargo-Moorhead’s stab at this murderous musical.
The transformation starts at 7:30 tonight through Saturday, with a 2 p.m. Sunday matinee and the same times next weekend at The Stage at Island Park, 333 4th St. S., Fargo. Tickets range from $10 to $20. (701) 235-6778
