‘American Idol’ finalist going to Broadway in ‘Jekyll’
A former “American Idol” contestant is heading to Broadway with a character who, it’s safe to say, is truly two-faced.
Constantine Maroulis will play the title dual role in a revival of the musical “Jekyll & Hyde” that’s slated to come to New York in spring 2013 after a 25-week national tour that starts in San Diego on Oct. 2, Nederlander Presentations Inc. announced Sunday.
Mr. Maroulis, who was a finalist on the fourth season of “American Idol,” had a three-year run in Broadway’s “Rock of Ages” and received a best actor Tony nomination and a Drama League nomination for his performance. He also played the role of Roger Davis in a recent national tour of “Rent.”
Mr. Maroulis made his Broadway debut in “The Wedding Singer” and is currently in the title role of “Toxic Avenger” at the Alley Theatre in Houston. His debut album, “Constantine,” was released on his own label, Sixth Place Records.
Additional cast and creative team, as well as tour cities, will be announced later.
“Jekyll & Hyde” made its Broadway debut in 1997 with such songs as “This is the Moment,” “A New Life” and “Someone Like You,” earning four Tony nominations. It tells the story of a London doctor who accidentally unleashes his evil alternate personality in his quest to cure his father’s mental illness.
The family of a missing Kansas City baby has taped an appearance on the “Dr. Phil” show.
Viewers can tune in Friday to watch the interview with Lisa Irwin’s parents and a private investigator who’s searching for her, the Associated Press reports.
Lisa was reported missing Oct. 4 when her father, Jeremy Irwin, came home from work around 4 a.m. and couldn’t find her. Mr. Irwin and Deborah Bradley say they think someone broke into the house and took their daughter.
Ms. Bradley has said police have accused her of being involved in Lisa’s disappearance. In tearful statements to the media early on, Ms. Bradley repeatedly insisted she doesn’t know what happened to her child.
No suspects have been named, despite an intensive search.
