Jekyll & Hyde
Robert Louis Stevenson’s classic tale confronts the dual nature of humankind as the noble Dr. Jekyll attempts to separate the good in his mind from the evil. While the Tony-nominated book twists and turns, the doctor uses himself as a test subject, injecting a serum that forces the light in him to relinquish control to the dark. But as he falls deeper into the seductive lifestyle of immorality, lured by the promise of nocturnal trysts and repercussion-free jaywalking, his alter-ego, Mr. Hyde, becomes more violent. Carrying the story along are pop anthems such as “Someone Like You” and other soaring melodies by Frank Wildhorn—the composer behind Whitney Houston’s “Where Do Broken Hearts Go” and Broadway musicals including The Scarlet Pimpernel.
Before their show, guests of the Ames Center peer out the lobby’s two-story glass walls to the skyline of Minneapolis. Shaking off the inspiring sights of civilization, they enter into a world of entertainment and make believe. Inside the 1,014-seat auditorium, the proscenium stage spotlights actors and musicians, and striking metal cutouts line the walls. When lit from behind, these cutouts create a tangle of shadows and light reminiscent of a child’s dream or the opus of an insane shadow puppeteer. The center also hosts a 150-seat Black Box theatrer, as well as an expansive art gallery and rehearsal area.
