Jekyll and Hyde The Musical (2001)
Jekyll & Hyde: Direct from Broadway is a 2001 television film of the Broadway production of the musical Jekyll & Hyde as captured live in performance on Broadway featuring the show's final Broadway cast.
The show was captured at Broadway’s Plymouth Theatre in New York City December 2000 utilizing multiple high definition cameras by Broadway Worldwide. The show is a musical version of the Robert Louis Stevenson story about a doctor who conducts an experiment on himself that results in his bringing out the dark, murderous side of his inner self, Mr. Hyde.
The Broadway Television Network was an early experiment of having a Broadway-themed pay-per-view station, with the intentions of filming 4-6 Broadway productions every season. The production company, which later was re-named to Broadway Worldwide, filmed the Broadway production during the last week of its run with David Hasselhoff.
The musical was later released to both the short-lived Broadway Pay-per-view channel and to cinemas nationwide. A VHS and DVD release followed, as well as a deal with HBO for 18 months of airings.
