A splendid version of the ultimate psychological thriller "Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde" is on stage at the Spotlighters Theatre through Oct. 27.This excellent new adaptation by the show's producer, director and star, Mark Redfield, in collaboration with actor Stuart Voytilla, is faithful to the original Robert Louis Stevenson novel. The very sophisticated, intellectual work presents, as Stevenson intended, the fascinating tale of the good and evil warring within us in the form of a good, old-fashioned mystery.

A little-noticed yet significant report card was issued recently measuring the progress of the fledgling Consumer Financial Protection Bureau thus far. The report by a Bipartisan Policy Center task force comes after almost a year's worth of in-depth review and analysis and seems to support what critics of the CFPB have been saying all along: This unaccountable bureaucracy harms business and consumers alike. While reading the report's characterization of the bureau's standard operating procedures, one is more likely to envision the workings of a Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde versus those of a federal bureau charged with protecting millions of consumers.

Convention says that most actors would rather be onstage than on-screen - you know, the smell of greasepaint, the roar of a live crowd, the thrill of getting an immediate response to your performance. But that's not Mark Redfield, a fixture on the local stage for much of the 1990s. Five years have passed since his last performance before a live audience; this summer, he completed his first movie, an adaptation of Robert Louis Stevenson's Dr. Jekyll & Mr. Hyde, for which he wears the myriad hats of actor, director, set designer, co-producer and co-screenwriter.

Robert Louis Stevenson's "Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde" is a classic account of good vs. evil, and New Century Theater's spanking new theatrical adaptation is mostly to the good.This ambitious version -- scripted by Mark Redfield and Stuart Voytilla and being presented at the Spotlighters Theatre -- accentuates the melodrama of Stevenson's horror story. Most of the heightening springs from the addition of romantic subplots, a tactic also used in some of the many screen versions. Jekyll's lady (Johanna Cox)

Stephen Frears' "Mary Reilly" moves slowly but surely. It knows where it's going, and that's straight to the heart of horror.Everything in the film is dank and cold as a public urinal in a highway road stop in Massachusetts in November. Ostensibly a version of Robert Louis Stevenson's "Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde," once memorably filmed with Spencer Tracy and Ingrid Bergman against a backdrop of gaslit Victoriana, Frears makes it feel hardly English at all.This Doc Jekyll and his bad-boy-inside Hyde seem far more Germanic in temperament, something out of the seething unconscious of a culture that was to produce in short order both Sigmund Freud and Adolf Hitler.

GODALMING, England -- They called her Aunt Bumps, and she was the grand doyenne and genius of the modern English garden.Gertrude Jekyll was a quiet reformer. She took garden planning out of the formal drawing room and dropped it into the garden soil where it belonged, to paraphrase an old Raymond Chandler line.But she looked a most unlikely reformer, more like Queen Victoria than Rosa Luxemburg. She was a great expansive woman with plump blooming cheeks, full jowls, hair pulled back severely and weak eyes peeking through tiny oval spectacles.

Loretta and Andy Favret invited us to a cocktail party in their rented beachfront condo on St. Simons Island, Ga. They used to live in Maryland and now live in Delaware, just like my wife, Madeline, and me. Like them, we also rent a St. Simons condo in the winter, when Bethany Beach and Fenwick Island are bleak and lonely. All the other people at the party that afternoon were snowbirds -- retired folks from states with frigid winters who come south for a month or longer. St. Simons and the other nearby islands, known as the "Golden Isles" of Georgia, have become a regular winter destination for many in recent years, although the area is still primarily a spring and summer resort.

The Theatre at AACC (formerly the Moonlight Troupers) recently tackled as its first production under its new name the Jeffrey Hatcher adaptation of "Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde." This version features one actor playing respected physician Dr. Henry Jekyll, one actor playing chambermaid Elizabeth Jelkes and four actors (including one woman) playing the evil Edward Hyde. The production marked a first for me - I needed to attend a second performance. Familiarity with Spencer Tracy's classic 1941 film and the Frank Wildhorn and Leslie Bricusse's 1990 musical version could not have prepared me for Hatcher's "Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde" in just one sitting.

For its 58th season's annual musical, Colonial Players tackles the dark Victorian tale of good and evil, Jekyll & Hyde, with aplomb, thanks to an energetic cast and immensely clever staging. Director Craig Allen Mummey's actors can sing and dance - and even perform fight scenes fearlessly. His set, designed with help from Dick Whaley, forgoes computer-controlled staging for a U-shaped bench-like representational set fitted with disappearing platforms to instantly create Jekyll's laboratory, a hospital board room, an elegant home, a tawdry pub and the mean streets of London.

"Scarlett O'Hara was not beautiful," wrote Margaret Mitchell in the opening lines of Gone With the Wind. But that didn't stop David O. Selznick from casting Vivien Leigh, who was, in the part. Lovers of the novel were appalled. Just as, when the casts for Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone and The Fellowship of the Ring (opening in December) were announced, some devotees of the novels of J.K. Rowling and J.R.R. Tolkien howled. Lots of people, when they read novels, imagine them as movies, which leads to disappointment when the novels become films.
