After 30 regular performances, the Broadway revival of “Jekyll and Hyde” will close on May 12, seven weeks before it was scheduled to end its run: “It was supposed to play 13 weeks at the Marquis Theatre, but the box-office reception has been frosty. ‘Jekyll & Hyde’ eked out $439,586 last week, just 28 percent of its potential gross and a doleful number for a musical. Many straight plays, such as ‘Macbeth‘ and ‘I’ll Eat You Last,’ earned more despite playing in theaters with far fewer seats.” The Wrap
