Wildhorn set for Broadway return

'Jekyll and Hyde' to hit Rialto in spring 2013 after tour

Frank Wildhorn tuner “Jekyll and Hyde” is getting a return run on Broadway, landing in Gotham in spring 2013 following a 25-week tour that launches in San Diego this fall.

New production will star “American Idol” alum Constantine Maroulis — previously on Broadway in “Rock of Ages” — starring as the split-personality doc in a production helmed and choreographed by Jeff Calhoun (“Newsies”).

“Jekyll” may seem an unlikely Rialto return for Wildhorn given a recent Broadway track record that includes short-lived flops “Wonderland” last season and “Bonnie and Clyde” (also helmed by Calhoun) this season.

But while Wildhorn rarely gets much love from New York critics or audiences, his work has proven extremely popular on the road and can serve as a box office magnet for regional presenters.

The same could prove true for the latest incarnation of “Jekyll and Hyde,” Wildhorn’s longest-running creation on Broadway. Show’s initial Rialto run, which also was preceded by a tour, played for more than 3 1/2 years in a stint that began in 1997.

Conceived by Wildhorn and Steve Cuden, the tuner has music by Wildhorn and book and lyrics by Leslie Bricusse.

New staging is produced by Nederlander Presentations. Tour kicks off Oct. 2 at San Diego’s Civic Theater after a pre-tour stint Sept. 7-30 at the La Mirada Theater for the Performing Arts in La Mirada, Calif.
