You can run but you can’t Hyde; Lincoln Cathedral sets the stage for epic battle between good and evil.
Tickets will go on sale Tuesday 14 February 2017, 10am.
Lincoln Cathedral will open its doors once more in August 2017 to entertain, delight and dazzle audiences with the Broadway bestseller ‘Jekyll and Hyde: The Musical’.
This hit show was written for the stage by Frank Wildhorn and Leslie Bricusse based on the classic novel The Strange Case of Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde by Robert Louis Stevenson. The musical was written in the 1980s and has been performed worldwide to great critical acclaim. The musical is a much lighter take than the original gothic horror and explores the epic struggle of man between good and evil.
The powerful pop rock music charts the struggle of a Doctor attempting to find a cure for his father’s mental illness, which goes drastically wrong and creates an alter ego who soon wreaks havoc on the streets of Victorian London. So many of the shows themes are universal; love, honour, family, life, death and illness. Thought provoking and moving – this will rock Lincoln’s theatre world!
The Cathedral hope this production will allow over two hundred local people to join together to produce this musical hit in the Nave. The company, made completely of volunteers, have blown audiences away for two years running by the stunning performances they have given.
Director, Ben Poole, who has agreed to resume his role as a volunteer producer and director, said;
“It’s about building community, nurturing local talent and bringing a fresh generation of visitors to this beautiful building and city; all while raising much needed funds for the Cathedral we love.”
