Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde

  • East Lynne Theater Company @ The First Presbyterian Church 500 Hughes St. Cape May, NJ 08204 (map)

Enjoy a classic silent film with live organ accompaniment by Wayne Zimmerman. When Robert Louis Stevenson’s The Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde was published in 1886, it was an immediate success. Many scholars consider the 1920 silent film adaptation of this classic novel, starring John Barrymore, to be the first great American horror film. Although Barrymore had been acting in films since 1914, he had not found the same success he enjoyed on stage until Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde. Since 2011, Wayne Zimmerman has been accompanying silent classics for East Lynne Theater Company. He has played in a variety of venues from coast to coast and in Hawaii, regaling audiences with his silent-film accompaniment and concerts.
