Development[ edit ] Wildhorn and Cuden had written the score in the late s, producing a demo recording in with Chuck Wagner, Christopher CarothersTuesday Knight and Gillian Gallant but it was not produced on Broadway to begin with due to financing. The show was subsequently re-written by Wildhorn and Leslie Bricusse and a world premiere production was announced for in Houston, Texas. Gregory Boyd directed the production.
Inspiration and writing[ edit ] Robert Louis Stevenson Stevenson had long been intrigued by the idea of how human personalities can affect how to incorporate the interplay of good and evil into a story.
While still a teenager, he developed a script for a play about Deacon Brodiewhich he later reworked with the help of W. Henley and which was produced for Jakylle and hyde first time in In the small hours of one morning,[ Thinking he had a nightmare, I awakened him. I was dreaming a fine bogey tale.
I remember the first reading as though it were yesterday. Louis came downstairs in a fever; read nearly half the book aloud; and then, while we were still gasping, he was away again, and busy writing.
I doubt if the first draft took so long as three days. According to author Jeremy Hodges,  Stevenson was present throughout the trial and as "the evidence unfolded he found himself, like Dr Jekyll, 'aghast before the acts of Edward Hyde'.
Myers's attention and he wrote to Stevenson after the story was published. Stevenson was polite in his response but rejected that reading.
As was customary, Mrs Stevenson would read the draft and offer her criticisms in the margins. Robert Stevenson was confined to bed at the time from a haemorrhage.
Therefore, she left her comments with the manuscript and Robert in the toilet. She said that in effect the story was really an allegorybut Robert was writing it as a story.
After a while, Robert called her back into the bedroom and pointed to a pile of ashes: Scholars debate whether he really burnt his manuscript; there is no direct factual evidence for the burning, but it remains an integral part of the history of the novella.
A number of later biographers have alleged that Stevenson was on drugs during the frantic re-write; for example, William Gray's revisionist history A Literary Life said he used cocaine while other biographers said he used ergot.
According to Osbourne, "The mere physical feat was tremendous and, instead of harming him, it roused and cheered him inexpressibly". He continued to refine the work for four to six weeks after the initial re-write. The novella was written in the southern English seaside town of Bournemouthwhere Stevenson had moved due to ill health, to benefit from its sea air and warmer southern climate.
