LARCHMONT, N.Y. -- A bit of Broadway will be coming to Larchmont when the Larchmont Playhouse will screen high-definition performances of "Jekyll & Hyde: The Musical" and "Duke Ellington's Sophisticated Ladies" on Wednesday, Nov. 20 and Wednesday, Dec. 4, respectively.
"Jekyll & Hyde" tells the classic Robert Louis Stevenson story of the epic battle between good and evil, as imagined by acclaimed composer Frank Wildhorn and writer/lyricist Leslie Bricusse. David Hasselhoff made his Broadway debut in the dual title role.
"Jekyll & Hyde" is the longest-running show in the history of Broadway’s Plymouth Theatre, with more than 1500 performances over nearly four years.
Recently restored and remastered tapes of the 1981 Tony-winning "Duke Ellington's Sophisticated Lades" are now being exhibited on the big screen for the first time.
The historic first live-in-performance capture of a currently running Broadway musical will be presented in remastered surround sound.
The production features the Duke Ellington Orchestra under the direction of Mercer Ellington and a cast that includes Grammy-winner Phyllis Hyman and 3-time Tony-winner, Hinton Battle.
An all-star score celebrates the Duke with "Take the "A" Train", "I'm Beginning to See the Light", "Hit Me With a Hot Note and Watch Me Bounce", "It Don't Mean a Thing (If It Ain't Got That Swing)", "In a Sentimental Mood", "Sophisticated Lady", "Don't Get Around Much Anymore", "Satin Doll", and "I Got It Bad and That Ain't Good", among many others.
