The reviews are in for the musical’s revival and it looks like most critics have nothing but praise for the adaptation. While some, like the Associated Press’s Mark Kennedy don’t pass up the opportunity to comment on the production’s camp factor, there is also a lot to be said about the stars’ - Award nominee Constantine Maroulis and Grammy Award nominee and R&B superstar Deborah Cox – stunning performances. Charles Inglewood of The New York Times calls Maroulis’s portrayal of Jeckyl “satuesque and beautiful” and praises Cox’s “suffering dignity”.
