Fractured: The Mysterious Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde
Solace Theatre's production of Fractured: The Mysterious Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde is directed by Ellie Faggion with book, music and lyrics by Jeremy and Erin Phillips. While inspired by the classic novel by Robert Louis Stevenson, Fractured is far from the story you've heard. Set in 1940's Chicago, Fractured is an up-beat musical with a steady balance of comedy and drama. Dr. Jekyll might have found a cure for human wickedness, but things begin to run amuck when Mr. Hyde shows up in town. While his random criminal acts and violence are counted as nothing unusual by the police, Lizzie O'Connell - an aspiring investigative journalist - begins to put the pieces together. As Dr. Jekyll's experiments begin to fail and Mr. Hyde grows more powerful, Lizzie is the only one who might be able to solve the mystery before it's too late.
