B’way ‘Jekyll’ goes to Marquis

Musical changes theaters, sets opening date

The Broadway return of Frank Wildhorn tuner “Jekyll and Hyde” has jumped theaters, switching to the Marquis from the previously announced Richard Rodgers, and setting an opening night for April 18.

“Jekyll,” making the final stop of a touring production that’s now on the road with Constantine Maroulis in the title roles, moves in to a venue that’s soon to be vacated by “Evita,” shuttering Saturday. Producers of “Evita” had been hoping to keep that show running longer, but couldn’t find an available star who would have had the same box office clout of current topliner Ricky Martin.

The “Jekyll” shift leaves the current occupant of the Richard Rodgers, Scarlett Johansson starrer “Cat on a Hot Tin Roof,” free to ride its strong sales into an extension beyond its current March 30 closing. Whether that’s at all feasible with the cast’s skeds, on the other hand, is not yet clear.

Co-starring Deborah Cox, “Jekyll and Hyde” lands at the Marquis April 5 prior to its April 18 opening for a 13-week run in Gotham.
