The first thing out of my mouth is, GO SEE THE SHOW! It rates a 3+ out of my five.And that is normally very good. The show is great, the cast, songs and props are the best ever, and not to mention Linda Eder and Robert Cuccioli make the best broadway couple. I went last year, 1997 in August, and again in 1998,in January. In the summber of 97 i saw Linda and Evans, not Robert and Linda, i saw Robert and Linda in Jan. The basic plot(can't give everything away ya know) is that, Robert is Jeklly and Hyde, talk about a skitsafrinic(fine blame me for all the bad spelling), is a doctor who at first sets out for a cure for his father whoes in a comma. Instead of finding what he set out to find, he finds something else, not saying. He's engaged to Emma. But on bachelor night, his friends takes him out to a bar and Lucy (linda Eder) sings about "Good N' Evil" and the choices one makes through life, i love that song. Anyway, Hyde loves Lucy, and Jeklly is attracked to her. Lucy on the other hand is attracted to Hyde's bod and Jeklly's kindnes -s. Anyway, alot of people die...hahahahaha...sorry...and one beloved character too...nto saying...sniff...sniff...waaaaa!!!!!!
As i have always said and stressed, the extra's are the building blocks of the whole musical.And by the word extra i mean that they arn't the main characters, their like chorus members, or something. Anyway, what i don't like is when the curtains up and they come out with only a few soft appluads that fill the ear. I mean they work as hard and even harder then the main characters, so why not give them the credit they deserve? Anyway they do make up most of the senery and the atmosphere in the show. SO when you're there at a musical and its the finaly curtain call, appluad like mad for the cast and the extras most of all, but if that cutie Robert and Linda are there, feel free to do as you please..
