We've got a dramaturg to talk about a musical that really could've used a dramaturg. A musical with more concept albums (5) than actual cast albums (1), the last one released fifteen (15) years after it opened on Broadway. A mega(?)- hit from American musical theatre's Saleri: Frank Wildhorn.

Topics include: Laura & Patrick's unironic love of this show, Laura & Patrick's ironic love of this show, Patrick's Colm Wilkinson impression, What Jekyll & Hyde thinks it's about, and What Jekyll & Hyde is actually about.

Featured recordingsJekyll & Hyde - The Complete Work (1995) • Jekyll & Hyde - The Original Broadway Cast Recording (1997) • Dr. Jekyll & Mr. Hyde - The 1986 Studio Demo Recording (1986) • Chess - Original Broadway Cast Recording (1988) • The Secret Garden - The Original Broadway Cast Recording (1991)
