"The theatre is no place to be entertained, Utterson"
-Dr. Henry Jekyll
What the critics are saying:
“It’s a highly innovative work, impressive not only for its delightfully morbid sense of humor and the versatility of the acting, but for its meticulous marriage of theme and aesthetics.” - Angie Hoover, StageRaw.com
“there is never a dull moment” - Rob Stevens, HainesHisWay.com
“The two stars are not only extremely talented, but the audience can tell that they are deeply invested in what they’ve created and want to share their enjoyment.” - Lacy Rae, Media-Geeks.com
“Stromberg is nothing short of amazing” - Don Grigware, Broadwayworld.com
“the spectacular performances, clever production, and a timeless message about the human condition, Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde is just what the doctor ordered.” - Tony Frankel, StageAndCinema.com
“Stromberg is hilarious rotating between being a little girl, a drunken old man, a blustering policeman, and a concerned maid (among others).” - Lacy Rae, Media-Geeks.com
“Stromberg is a marvel” - Rob Stevens, Haineshisway.com
“Both actors display a great deal of charm, courage and panache” - Don Grigware, BroadwayWorld.com
“It is always important to point out the negatives in a show, if only for credibility’s sake, but if you are a person who loves demented comedy and insightful performance, direction, and design, remarking on the negatives in this work might be as futile as Jekyll’s effort to divorce good from evil within himself.” - Angie hoover, StageRaw.com
DR. JEKYLL & MR. HYDE
Based on Robert Louis Stevenson’s “The Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde”
Directed by Anna Stromberg
Nominated for six Hollywood Fringe Festival Awards including Best Comedy, winner of the 2CentsTheatre Award for Distinctive Voices, and winner of the SoHo Playhouse (NYC) Fringe Encore Series Award!
Dr. Jekyll & Mr. Hyde, written and performed by Burt Grinstead and Anna Stromberg, is a dizzying, fast-paced, horrifying extravaganza that leaves you splitting ribs as you question your own morality. This genre-bending thriller made its world premiere at the Los Angeles LGBT Center June 2018 as part of the Hollywood Fringe Festival.
Based on the classic novella, this original adaptation takes you to the dismal streets of London in the 1860s, where societal pressures silence a gentle doctor’s questions about the nature of morality. As the pressure intensifies, Dr. Jekyll takes matters into his own hands. However, things take an eerie turn when his experiment takes on a life of its own. Will his efforts save the world, or will they destroy all that he holds dear? After all, the road to hell is paved with good intentions.
