Robert Louis Stevenson wrote his novella “The Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde” upon waking from a fever dream, so the story goes, and his strange tale has been troubling our dreams ever since -- maybe because it taps into a suspicion that dark forces live within us. Its haunting story has survived any number of adaptations, including a musical that’s coming to Maui next week, under the direction of David Johnston of the Maui Academy of Performing Arts.
