Tybee Post Theater stages unique re-telling of classic story
By Sean Kelly/Connect Savannah
It’s possible that Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde is the most recognizable tale ever told around Halloween. The story, originally published as Robert Louis Stevenson’s 1886 novella Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde, revolves around Dr. Henry Jekyll and his evil alter-ego, Mr. Edward Hyde. It’s a story that has been told on stage, film, small screen, and more almost 150 years, but Tybee Post Theater guarantees a version of the classic tale like you’ve never before witnessed.
The theater is readying a production of Jeffrey Hatcher’s adaptation of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde, opening on Oct. 18 and running for two weekends. Ahead of the show, we talked to director Tony-Marchetti Knarr about staging this unique telling of the spooky tale.
