ROBERT CUCCIOLI TO MAKE DIRECTORIAL DEBUT IN FRANK WILDHORN'S JEKYLL & HYDE At The WESTCHESTER BROADWAY THEATRE AUGUST 2 - NOVEMBER 24
Robert Cuccioli, who wowed critics and audiences with his show-stopping performance in Broadway's hot musical thriller Jekyll & Hyde, makes his directorial debut when he directs Frank Wildhorn's Tony Award-winning musical at the Westchester Broadway Theatre from August 2 - November 24, 2001.
"I am thrilled to be making my directorial debut at a theatre as supportive and renowned as the Westchester Broadway Theatre," says Cuccioli. "I share a history with this theatre, and have a special place for it in my heart. I worked on many musicals here during my early years as an actor, which gave me the best training an actor could ask for. I'm looking forward to the exciting new challenge of directing Jekyll & Hyde. I love the show, and it's been a major part of my life for several years. I did 900 performances of it on Broadway - not to mention the national tour!"
Robert Cuccioli recieved a Drama Desk award, an Outer Critics Circle Award, and a Tony Award nomination for his electrifying dual performance in the Broadway Production of Jekyll & Hyde, and garnered Chicago's prestigious Joseph Jefferson Award during Jekyll & Hyde's national tour. Earlier this year, Cuccioli won critical acclaim in the New Jersey Shakespeare Festival productions of Antony and Cleopatra and Enter the Guardsman, a role he later reprised Off-Broadway at the Dimson Theatre. Cuccioli has starred in numerous productions at the Westchester Broadway Theatre, including the title role in the New York premiere of the Maury Yeston/Arthur Kopit Phantom - the longest running musical in the Westchester Broadway Theatre's illustrious history.
