Jekyll & Hyde in The Hague

For Mother’s Day, I was very excited to go along to a performance in the Zuiderpark Theater in The Hague of “Jekyll & Hyde”. My daughter had recently found a flyer at the local library of the event. “Isn’t this your favourite musical mama?”. She was right!

Way back in around 1997, I first heard the soundtrack with Australian singer Anthony Warlow. I’d never actually seen the production so it was fabulous to finally do so – even though it was this time in Dutch!

Theatergroep SPOT did a fantastic job of bringing this story to life.

I hope to get to see this musical again someday in English! Meanwhile I’m enjoying the soundtrack again on Spotify.
