Bonus photos: My day with Constantine Maroulis, Deborah Cox and ‘Jekyll & Hyde’


A look at the Buell Theatre pit, helmed for “Jekyll & Hyde” by Steven Landau. This production’s orchestra includes five permanent, touring musicians and eight locally hired musicians, including the amiable violinist below whose name, according to the program, is Robert Taylor. (If you know, email me at, thanks!)



Constantine Maroulis was enduring some pretty bad back pain on his Denver arrival, so the kinks were kindly worked out by company massager Aaron Ramey, who, as the beard might give away, is also a member of the acting company. He plays General Lord Glossop, and things don’t end as well for him as they did for Maroulis’ back.
