Witness the struggle between good and evil, order and chaos, taste and... bad taste. Two performers (repressed stiff Laurence and fun-loving anarchist Lindsay) battle to perform wildly clashing versions of Stevenson's classic. Will their working partnership (and marriage) emerge unscathed? A comedic, musical romp from the dynamic duo that brought you The Time Machine, Cinemusical, Cinemusical High, and Madame Magenta: Libros Mystica. Starring Malcolm Hardee Award winner Laurence Owen and 50-metre swimming certificate holder Lindsay Sharman ( 'Delightful' ***** ( 'A hilarious gem' ***** (MusicalTalk).

Heard a lot about this show, so we went to see it today. The Voodoo rooms was packed, and we were right at the back. It should be in a bigger venue.
Having said that, we thought it was brilliant, funny and clever. If multi-layered humour is you're thing and you aren't easily shocked, go see this. but get there early. we're going again.

As ever Laurence Owen and Lindsay Sharman offer the best value for money in Edinburgh. This is the best of the free fringe - make sure you get there early - these guys play to full houses - for good reason. Slick, funny, clever.

Owen and Sharman's latest meta-meta-literary musical romp is as fun as expected, mixing perfect comedic timing, humor that's simultaneously whip-smart and low-brow, and a shocking amount of legit musical talent. Part of the joy is seeing real-life couple play off one another so expertly, with well-honed stage antagonism and obvious underlying affection. You'll leave feeling both smarter and dumber. Highly recommended.

Overall, Jekyll vs Hyde is a thoroughly entertaining piece from a talented team. Notably, it is a free show, giving away a CD or downloadable copy of the show with a £10 donation, making it a bargain hour of entertainment for fans of new musicals or reworked literary classics. With a great mix of comedy throughout, a strong concept and high-quality songs, Jekyll vs Hyde is definitely worth seeking out.

“There are no spoilers for a story that’s 100 years old,” Lindsay Sharman argues early in Jekyll vs Hyde, as her costar and husband Laurence Owen attempts to get his high-art musical handpuppet adaptation of The Strange Case of Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde back on track. A quick show...
