The tumultuous history of the musical production bears some mentioning if only for the sheer amount of {{Cut Song}}s it generated. The first iteration of the show was played in Houston in 1990 and an album of that show was released featuring Colm Wilkinson and Linda Eder as the leads. It was popular enough that some of the songs became breakout hits ("This Is The Moment", for example, was played on the American broadcast of the 1992 Winter Olympics) and that people with more money than sense jumped on the show and [[ExecutiveMeddling pulled it in "14 different directions"]], eventually miring the production in legal tangles and a shaky attempt in a national tour. The writers decided to produce a new concept album in 1994 of the fully rewritten show which at least structurally resembled what would be the final form of the musical. It went through more rounds of cuts and rewrites before it finally premiered on Broadway in 1997. It ran for over 1500 shows, making it the longest running show at the Plymoth Theatre where it played, but still managed to lose money. It also had lackluster reviews but largely carried through on the backs of its extremely devoted fanbase, called "Jekkies".

* HotterAndSexier: "A Dangerous Game" has always had sexual undertones, but concert tour album Jekyll & Hyde Resurrection adds a heavy R&B beat. The [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Xgpu-JpJCtY 2012 version]] upon which the Broadway Revival is based cranks it [[UpToEleven up to eleven.]] ** And the subtext [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=19nLJ1rHu28 becomes text]] in the 2013 Revival, complete with BondageIsBad.

Moving to YMMV tab.
* CreatorsPet: Lucy gets an unusual amount of songs despite being TheNotLoveInterest in most revisions of the show, (she always has an unrequited infatuation with Henry, but it's rarely reciprocated in any production). The simplest explanation is that the character was written with Linda Eder in mind... who was dating (and later married!) writer/composer Frank Wildhorn at the time. ** Indeed, most of Lucy's cut songs ended up on Eder's solo albums and cabaret tour after she left the Broadway Production.

* CrowningMusicOfAwesome: Both Jekyll and Hyde get a ton of them, with "This is the Moment", "No One Must Ever Know/Confrontation" (in which Jekyll and Hyde ''[[TalkingToThemself duet]]''), "I Need To Know", and "Alive" being the stand-outs. ** Lucy does get a handful of really good numbers as well, though since her original actress was [[CreatorsPet dating the writer]] it should be no surprise.
