5 Reasons Why a Jekyll & Hyde Revival Is a Good... →
We don’t want to go crazy with this or anything, given that 90% of “announced” projects never happen, but news broke over the weekend that a revival of Jekyll & Hyde could be in the works. Everyone who has actual taste balked. Our first thought? Bring on the craptacularity…

If you’ve gotten anywhere near the Circle in the Square lately, you know that the lovely Lindsay Mendez is blowing the roof off eight times a week in Godspell.
