* TruerToTheText: Later Broadway revivals hew closer to the show's original vision, which was darker and edgier than the 1997 version and closer to the book, having Jekyll revel in the freedom Hyde gave him and paraphrasing directly from the book as he contemplated his dual natures.

The most recent revision (a 2015 high school version personally reworked by [[WordOfGod Frank Wildhorn]] himself) even includes Jekyll's suicide in his lab just after the final reprise of "Facade".

* ICannotSelfTerminate: Inverted. John finds he can't MercyKill Jekyll, forcing the latter to hurl himself on John's blade instead. Later versions of the show (notably a reworked ''[[WhatDoYouMeanItsNotForKids High School Version]]'' personally rewritten by composer Frank Wildhorn himself) feature Jekyll outright committing suicide after ''Confrontation'' with Utterson acting as the GreekChorus and having Emma stumble upon his body, bringing the show more in-line with the book it's based on.

* BigNo: Lisa/Emma usually lets loose with one of these when [[spoiler: Jekyll is shot/stabs himself depending on the version.]]



* BleachedUnderpants: Lucy's occupation as a prostitute was much more blatant in the 1994 concept recording; in the 1997 Broadway version she is obstinately a singer. Later versions re-added her original career.

* ArmorPiercingQuestion: When Jekyll is pitching his idea to the Board of Governors, the [[JerkassHasAPoint Bishop of Basingstoke]] asks him a question (one that [[DramaticIrony the audience will know is an extremely important question]] that Jekyll cannot answer and instead opts to deflect with emotional appeals about the plights of the mentally ill:
-->'''Bishop of Basingstoke''': And what if you're right, Jekyll? And you do manage to separate Good from Evil - '''What happens to the evil'''?
