Deborah Cox Joins Revival of "Jekyll and Hyde" Musical


Grammy-nominated singer Deborah Cox has joined the cast of the forthcoming revival of the "Jekyll and Hyde" musical Jekyll, set to tour this fall in advance of a Broadway run next year.

Variety reports that Cox, who played a 2004 Rialto stint in Aida, will play Lucy, the prostitute and performer who catches the eye of Hyde. Constantine Maroulis (Rock of Ages) will star as the two-faced title character.

The show is directed by Jeff Calhoun (Newsies), composed by Frank Wildhorn, and produced by Nederlander Presentations.

Jekyll will have a preliminary run in La Mirada, CA, in September ahead of an October 2 premier in San Diego. The 25-week tour culminates in a Broadway run in April 2013.
