Robert Evan, Anastasia Barzee and Luba Mason end their run in the Broadway musical, Jekyll & Hyde, Jan. 23, 2000, to be replaced by a trio yet to be named.

Evan succeeded Tony Award nominee Robert Cuccioli in the title role(s) of the musical thriller by lyricist-librettist Leslie Bricusse and composer Frank Wildhorn. At the Plymouth Theatre, Barzee and Mason play good girl, Emma Carew, and hooker-with-the-heart-of-gold, Lucy, respectively.

The musical opened on Broadway April 28, 1997, after years of regional development, tours and record releases. Business for the dark show, drawn from the novel by Robert Louis Stevenson, has been bolstered by a legion of fans who have been called "Jekkies." A revised national tour is currently on the road.

Lauded classics director Robin Phillips (an alum of Canada's Stratford Festival) has director credit for Broadway's Jekyll & Hyde.

The show was conceived for the stage by Steve Cuden and Wildhorn and developed by Alley Theatre in Houston, where Gregory Boyd directed, and 5th Avenue Musical Theatre and Theatre Under the Stars.
