Great Postive Press from Timeout Chicago for THE DREAM JOURNAL OF DOCTOR JEKYLL

TIMEOUT CHICAGO SAYS "SPOT ON...ENGROSSING...GROTESQUE...HILAROIUS"


Collaboratively penned by the Mammals’ committee of writers yet surprisingly cohesive, Jekyll is a grotesque, hilarious play-within-a-play. Professor Oliver Mastodon Peale is in possession of the authentic journal of Dr. Henry Jekyll. With the help of his faithful servant Hunch Front (yes, the opposite of a hunchback), Peale presents the contents of this tortured tome via a team of hypnotized somnambulists, used, we’re told, because their zombie-like state renders a performance superior to that of mere actors... Their quest involves love found and lost, blood rituals, demon possession, and a fair number of cunnilingus and rape jokes... the audacity of the jokes, the beautiful Victorian costumes and set, and the spot-on performances make for an engrossing night.

Another Review from Chicago Theatre Stalwart, Joe Janes!!!

Joe Janes - "This is Chicago Fringe Theater at its best"

"The acting is topnotch led by the triumvirate of Scott Barsotti, Gabe Garza and Skyler Schrempp as Jekyll, Hyde and Jekyll's mother, respectively. The production is a little steampunk, a little sideshow, a little horror. There's also more women in this Mammals show than any other I have seen and they are strong, memorable characters, especially Jekyll's mother, Alice and Jekyll's love interest, Eve (Sarah Scanlon). There is also music performed live by the actors and it is both beautiful and haunting... The Professor has a lovely, riveting monologue near the end of the show.

Chicago Reader Highly Recommends - THE DREAM JOURNAL OF DOCTOR JEKYLL

Highly Recommended - Chicago Reader

"The script's seven credited writers come up with some funny and affecting stuff, such as Dr. Jekyll's brotherly relationship with his all-id alter ego, Mr. Hyde, and a series of scenes imagining Jekyll with a girlfriend...Bob Fisher's inventively grotesque staging boasts gripping, ghoulish performances, unsettling live flute and violin music, and John Ross Wilson's fantastically lurid chamber-of-horrors set."

New City Recommends - THE DREAM JOURNAL OF DOCTOR JEKYLL!

NEW CITY - RECOMMENDED!

"Scott Barsotti embodies the refined but bloodless Jekyll; Gabe Garza scores as perverted frat-boy Hyde. The usually testosterone-infused Mammals environment makes room for some terrific female performances; Skyler Schrempp as Jekyll’s mad-dog genius mother and Sarah Scanlon as his take-no-crap lover display enviable acting and musical chops.

John Ross Wilson’s ornate rag-and-bone shop set makes great use of the deep, narrow space; Heidi Jade Warriner’s Victorian shabby chic costumes give the show its ragged, dreamy sparkle. "
