Former ‘American Idol’ contestant to star in Broadway’s ‘Jekyll & Hyde’NEW YORK - A former “American Idol’’ contestant is heading to Broadway with a character who, it’s safe to say, is truly two-faced.
Constantine Maroulis will play the title dual role in a revival of the musical “Jekyll & Hyde’’ that’s slated to come to New York in the spring of 2013 after a 25-week national tour that starts in San Diego on Oct. 2, Nederlander Presentations announced Sunday. Maroulis, who was a finalist on the fourth season of “American Idol,’’ had a three-year run in Broadway’s “Rock of Ages’’ and received a best actor Tony nomination and a Drama League nomination for his performance. He also played the role of Roger Davis in a recent national tour of “Rent.’’
Maroulis made his Broadway debut in “The Wedding Singer’’ and is currently in the title role of “Toxic Avenger’’ at the Alley Theatre in Houston. His debut album, “Constantine,’’ was released on his own label, Sixth Place Records. AP
