Last night, I went to the newly opened Times Square location of the Jekyll & Hyde Club—a themed restaurant based on the 19th-century Robert Louis Stevenson novel, The Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde. I am familiar with the spooky story and was always curious about the restaurant—having walked past the old location several times, where actors stand outside wearing Victorian garb and engaging passersby.
I recently interviewed Constantine Maroulis for an item in the May issue of IN New York magazine. Maroulis, who returns to Broadway in Jekyll & Hyde—he starts previews tonight (Apr. 5) for an Apr. 18 opening—is a genuinely nice guy. Pretty humble and grounded, considering his success, which he has worked very hard to achieve.
