After years of balancing a brilliant medical career with his secret battles against his murderous alter ego, Dr. Henry Jekyll is prepared to tell all. Seamus Dever takes a nice turn playing the good doctor and Matthew Hancock and Laila Ayad add nuanced performances as the doctor's oldest comrade and his estranged girlfriend in this smart and intimate LATW update of Robert Louis Stevenson's 1886 gothic horror. With the immediacy and audience reactions of the live recording, the dialogue is a little bit snappier and the relationships a little more personable than they are in the nineteenth-century original. Best of all, the creepy suggestion that we all have a little Mr. Hyde lurking inside us remains intact. B.P. © AudioFile 2023, Portland, Maine [Published: SEPTEMBER 2023]
