R&B singer Deborah Cox will star alongside Tony nominee Constantine Maroulis (Rock of Ages) in Frank Wildhorn and Steve Cuden’s new production of the musical Jekyll & Hyde. Cox, playing Lucy, and Maroulis, as Dr. Henry Jekyll and Edward Hyde, will make their way to Broadway for a limited engagement in April 2013 following a 25-week national tour launching this October.
Jekyll & Hyde is the story of a London doctor who accidentally unleashes his evil alternate personality while trying to cure his father’s mental illness. It first opened on Broadway in April 1997, with Linda Eder as Lucy and Robert Cuccioli in the dual leading role for which he earned a Tony nomination. Before it played its final performance in January 2001, replacements included rocker Sebastian Bach in his Broadway debut and David Hasselhoff.
