Marti Pellow, the hugely successful singer, songwriter and front man of Wet Wet Wet, makes a hotly-anticipated return to the Lyceum Theatre, Sheffield from Monday 18 – Saturday 30 April in the hit Broadway musical, Jekyll and Hyde.

Glamorous, sexy and deliciously wicked in equal measures, Jekyll and Hyde is based on Robert Louis Stevenson’s classic gothic novella. Marti Pellow stars as the brilliant but obsessive scientist whose sadistic alter ego wreaks havoc across Victorian London in a dark tale of love, redemption and the seductive power of evil.

Written by Frank Wildhorn with book and lyrics by the Academy Award-winning composer Leslie Bricusse (Stop The World I Want to Get Off, Scrooge, Doctor Dolittle, Victor/Victoria and Charlie and the Chocolate Factory), the musical features the hit song This Is The Moment. The Broadway production of Jekyll and Hyde ran for over 1500 performances between 1997 and 2001. Now embarking on a major UK Tour, Jekyll and Hyde is set to take Sheffield by storm.

Marti’s career began when he formed the band Wet Wet Wet with his school friends; they went on to become one of the most successful and highly acclaimed bands in British pop history. The band enjoyed consistent chart topping multi-platinum albums and have been nominated and won major industry awards including the Ivor Novellos and The Brits. Their 1994 single Love Is All Around was on the soundtrack to Four Weddings and a Funeral and continues to be one of the top five highest selling singles and most played songs of all time in the UK.

As well as a critically-acclaimed solo career, Marti has gone on to star in the West End, Broadway and on national tour in smash-hit stage musicals including The Witches of Eastwick, which appeared on the Lyceum stage in 2008.
