I want to help pay it forward." All three are very excited about doing this show. "I find this score to be absolutely fulfilling in musical achievement," says Elaine. "I am psyched about the cast of 'Jekyll & Hyde,'" says Jeanne, "and we will deliver one memorable per- formance." The Academy Players present "Jekyll & Hyde: In Concert" Feb. 8 and 9 at the James and Gloria Maron Cultural Arts Center in Providence. For complete details, visit www.academyplayersri.org. Editor's note: Frank O'Donnell will also be appearing in the show as Sir Danvers Carew. JEKYLL & HYDE From Page 2 between brothers. Nicole Kidman has had a huge year, between this and "The Upside." Here she plays Arthur's mom. DC has developed a knack for using mothers as the basis for the male hero's angst. Dolph Lundgren who just had a great turn reprising his Ivan Drago character in "Creed II" shows up here as King Nereus. Jason Momoa's Aquaman is by far the most charismatic of the DC film characters yet introduced, with perhaps an equal nod going to Gal Gadot's Wonder Woman. He brings a wit, charm and wisecracking demeanor to what feels like a very meaty role, but he brushes it all off with an I don't care attitude. Arthur is not nearly as damaged as Batman nor as dull as Superman. He's not dark or dreary, Arthur simply wants to shun his destiny and do his own thing on his own terms, especially if there's drinking involved James Wan has crafted a hero perhaps even more aspiring than has yet been brought forth in the DC Universe. "Aquaman" is light and airy and isn't bogged down by overbearing bad guys out for world domination. The bad guys here just want revenge and that keeps it personal and contained. I think DC may finally be learning from Marvel what it's been getting wrong. "Aquaman" is a fun film that will have you rooting for this rough and tumble reluctant hero. The film is rated PG-13.
