Constantine Maroulis to Star in Broadway-Bound Jekyll & Hyde Tour

Constantine Maroulis has been cast as the lead in the Broadway bound production of Jekyll and Hyde. The 25 week National tour launches in San Diego on October 2 and will open on Broadway Spring 2013.  Read the Press Release:

Nederlander Presentations, Inc. has announced that the JEKYLL & HYDE will return to Broadway in Spring 2013 following a 25-week National Tour starring Tony Award Nominee Constantine Maroulis in the dual title role of Dr. Henry Jekyll and Edward Hyde. The tour will launch at San Diego’s Civic Theatre in San Diego, California on October 2, 2012.

Conceived for the stage by Tony and Grammy Award nominee Frank Wildhorn and Steve Cuden, the four time Tony Award Nominated musical JEKYLL & HYDE features a book & lyrics by two-time Oscar winner, Emmy winner and four-time Tony Award Nominee Leslie Bricusse, music by Frank Wildhorn, and will be directed and choreographed by Tony Award Nominee Jeff Calhoun.

After four thrilling, chilling years on Broadway and multiple world-wide tours, this dark and dangerous love story from Oscar and Grammy winner Leslie Bricusse and Tony and Grammy Award nominee Frank Wildhorn will return in a new production that includes all the classic songs (This is the Moment, A New Life, Someone Like You) that first ‘grabbed audiences by the throat’ and transformed JEKYLL & HYDE into a theatrical phenomenon.

Constantine talks a little about the role with Broadway World

“It’s me. It’s definitely me. They are offering me a great deal to do it and they want me to go on the road with it first in the Fall and then bring it in next Spring. Jeff Calhoun is directing and Jimmy Nederlander is producing. So, obviously, since Jimmy is producing it, we have a theater. So, I am sort of torn up about it because I have this other great show on my hands. Frank has become a good buddy of mine and I think that with Jeff directing and with some strong adjustments to the show and a whole new design team and direction that it could be awesome. [Pause.] Who knows?”
