Jekyll and Hyde at Mark Twain House

{ Friday to Sunday, October 27th to 29th } Capital Classics Theatre Co. brings Jekyll & Hyde to Hartford’s Mark Twain House.

The Mark Twain House & Museum will be a little scarier than usual later this month. Capital Classics Theatre Company will bring an original adaptation of The Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde to the Lincoln Theatre at the museum space from Friday, October 27th through Sunday, October 29th. Capital Classics uses live sound effects, music, and vocals to recount this classic Gothic tale from Robert Louis Stevenson, which follows the macabre and mysterious events that unfold when Dr. Harry Jekyll’s attempts to make a potion to suppress his dark side go awry, unleashing the evil Edward Hyde. Performances will also include radio-theatre style readings of selected Mark Twain short stories.

Capital Classics has previously performed radio-theatre renderings of Bram Stoker’s Dracula and Edgar Allen Poe’s short stories. Friday and Saturday night performances of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde begin at 7:30 p.m. The Sunday matinee begins at 2 p.m. Tickets are $20 general admission and $15 for Mark Twain House and Let’s Go Arts! members, and are available by phone at 860.280.3130 or online.
