Madalena Alberto played the role of Fantine in the acclaimed 25th Anniversary International Tour production of LES MISÉRABLES which finished at London’s Barbican Center on October 2010. In Spring 2011 she performed in a new production of GODSPELL directed by Michael Strassen at the Union Theatre. With already a large career in musical theatre, she has starred in shows such as FAME (UK Tour), CHICAGO (Kuala Lumpur), ZORRO THE MUSICAL (West End) and OVER THE THRESHOLD (Edinburgh and Off-West End). In March 2011 she released the album ‘Foreign Sketches - Live Studio Recording’ in which she performs her own songs. She has been lately offering different concerts in London and in Lisbon. The next one will be at London’s Proud Camden on the 24th April.
Alongside Tim Rogers and Madalena Alberto, Joanna Strand (Master Class, THE PHANTOM OF THE OPERA) will take the role of Emma Carew, Mark Goldthorp (AVENUE Q, THE DROWSY CHAPERONE) will appear as John Utterson and Mark Turnball (LES MISÉRABLES, THE ROCKY HORROR SHOW, CHICAGO) will play the role of Sir Danvers Carew.
The cast also includes Andrea Miller (MY FAIR LADY, It’s a Wonderful Life), Lydia Jenkins (Ruddigore), Patsy Blower (RAGTIME, Fing’s Aint What They Used T’Be), Louise Stanton (HELLO DOLLY), Hayley Driscoll (GYPSY, TOMMY), Rodney Ward (BBC’s Material Girl), John McLarnon (SUNDAY IN THE PARK WITH GEORGE), Paul Tate (NINE, THE KING AND I) and Antony Lawrence.
The musical is based on the acclaimed novella The Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde by Robert Louis Stevenson, about a London doctor who accidentally unleashes his evil alternate personality in his quest to cure his father’s mental illness. JEKYLL AND HYDE has music by Broadway composer Frank Wildhorn, (THE SCARLET PIMPERNEL, DRACULA) with book and lyrics by Academy Award-winning composer/lyricist Leslie Bricusse (Doctor Dolittle, Scrooge, Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory).
Morphic Graffiti’s production promises to uncover the grit and depravity of Stevenson’s vision. The results will be a thrilling and, at times, terrifying ordeal.
JEKYLL & HYDE was first introduced as a concept album in 1990 featuring Colm Wilkinson and Linda Eder, and shortly thereafter had its world premiere at the Alley Theatre in Houston starring Chuck Wagner as Jekyll/ Hyde and Linda Eder as Lucy. Following a 30-city National Tour, the Broadway production opened at The Plymouth Theatre on April 28, 1997 and earned four Tony Award nominations. Directed by Robin Phillips and choreographed by Joey Pizzi, the production starred Robert Cuccioli, who earned a Tony Nomination as well as Joseph Jefferson, Outer Critics Circle and Drama Desk Awards for his portrayal of Jekyll/ Hyde, Linda Eder, who won the Theatre World Award for her Broadway debut, as Lucy and Christianne Noll as Emma Carew. After 1543 performances, and featuring such replacements as Sebastian Bach and David Hasselhoff in the title role, the production played its final performance on January 7, 2001. The show’s popularity catapulted well beyond the Great White Way and, within the subsequent decade of its world premiere, JEKYLL & HYDE became an international sensation with multiple tours in the UK and North America, and over a dozen recordings from Germany, Spain, Austria, Hungary, Sweden, the Czech Republic, Japan and South Korea, among others. A new North-American touring production of the show starred by Constantine Maroulis and Deborah Cox will arrive to Broadway in April 2013.
