Probably one of my most favorite stories is Jekyll and Hyde. I have watched countless movies, and have read so many books, that at least in some respect, reference the light, and dark side of human nature. The musical is coming to a Pittsburgh local theater, and is sure to be fantastic. One of my oldest friends Bobby Fisher stars in the leading role, I will be there this Friday the 18th to view it, and I hope you can come as well!
I also couldn’t resist posting a pic of one of my favorite movies about Jekyll & Hyde, Mary Reilly. Yes, some said it was bad, (mostly due to Julia Roberts terrible Irish accent), but I loved it, and still have it on VHS.
