Jekyll & Hyde fans can expect the long-awaited announcement about the Broadway production of the Frank Wildhorn/ Leslie Bricusse musical sometime during the first week in November, according to production spokesman Richard Kornberg.

After a period of uncertainty due to no Broadway theatres being available in New York, the touring hit, Jekyll & Hyde has been talking about beginning Broadway previews in spring 1997 at a theatre to be announced, possibly the Plymouth.

Scaled down from its epic, mega-musical scope, the musical is now helmed by British director, Robin Phillips, replacing Houston's Gregory Boyd.

With music by Wildhorn and book & lyrics by Bricusse, Jekyll & Hyde adapts Robert Louis Stevenson's moral chiller about a good doctor who unleashes his own violent id.

Robert Cuccioli and Linda Eder (Lucy) are expected to reprise the roles they played during the popular 1995-96 tour. Although the Plymouth Theatre had been mentioned, James Lawson (of Niko Associates, representing PACE Theatrical Group) would not yet go on record with that choice, though he did promise that a New York Times advertisement would be shortly forthcoming. If all goes well, Jekyll & Hyde should open its magic formula in spring 1997.

The show's new logo displayed at the Sept. 8 "Broadway on Broadway" showcase featured the name "Jekyll" positioned above "Hyde", with the words presented in opposing colors.
