For nearly four years, Robert Cuccioli dazzled audiences and critics across America with his riveting portrayal of mad scientist Dr. Jekyll and his sinister alter ego Mr. Hyde on Broadway and in the national touring company of the Frank Wildhorn/Leslie Bricusse smash hit musical thriller Jekyll & Hyde.  Cuccioli garnered a Tony Nomination, Drama Desk Award, and Outer Critics Circle Award in 1997 for his outstanding dual performance in Jekyll & Hyde on  Broadway. In addition, he was honored with Chicago’s prestigious Joseph Jefferson Award during Jekyll & Hyde’s successful 34-week tour. While acting has always been Cuccioli’s first love, it isn’t his first career. The Long Island native graduated from St. John’s University with a degree in Finance, and worked as a financial consultant at E.F. Hutton for three years before pursuing a full-time performing career. At the age of 23, he landed a role with The Light Opera of Manhattan and starred in the most beloved Gilbert and Sullivan operettas, and such classics as The Merry Widow, The New Moon, The Desert Song, and The Vagabond King. The talented actor quickly gained an extensive list of regional theatre credits, ranging from Oklahoma!, Jesus Christ Superstar, Lend Me A Tenor, 1776, and Rhythm Ranch at New Jersey’s renowned Paper Mill Playhouse to City Of Angels, Pirates of Penzance, Carousel, The Fantasticks, and Ankles Aweigh.  Cuccioli’s star continued to rise, and in 1987 he received his first big break, playing Lancelot to the legendary Richard Harris’ King Arthur in the National and Canadian tours of Camelot. In 1991, he garnered the Outer Critics Circle Award for Brilliant Ensemble Performance in the highly-acclaimed Kander and Ebb revue And The World Goes ‘Round. Other Off-Broadway roles quickly followed -- among them Gaston in Gigi, Nathan in The Rothschilds, and Jose in the recently discovered Frank Loesser musical Senor Discretion. In 1993, following his record-setting, nine-month run in the New York premiere of the Maury Yeston/Arthur Kopit Phantom at the Westchester Broadway Theatre, Cuccioli made his Broadway debut as Javert in Les Miserables. Completing his highly successful run with the Broadway production of Jekyll & Hyde in January 1999, Cuccioli set out to stretch his artistic muscles even further. Performing a wide array of challenging roles in venues that extended from Off-Broadway to prestigious regional theatres around the country, including The Shakespeare Theatre of DC, The Shakespeare Theatre of NJ, Papermill Playhouse, Pittsburgh Civic Light Opera, The McCarter Theatre, The Guthrie, San Jose Rep. and The George Street Playhouse. In that time, this versatile performer has added to his credits Shakespeare’s Hamlet (Claudius), Julius Caesar (Brutus), the title roles in Macbeth and Antony and Cleopatra, classic plays as The School For Scandal, Amadeus (for which he received a Best Actor nod from the NJ Star-Ledger), and The Seafarer beloved musical comedies and dramas including Jacques Brel Is Alive And Well And Living in Paris, Guys and Dolls, The Sound Of Music, Funny Girl, Carnival, A Little Night Music, Bells Are Ringing, The Secret Garden, Pajama Game, and Man Of La Mancha and has created roles in new musicals and plays including Temporary Help, Lorenzaccio (Helen Hayes Nomination), Fiction, Dorian, Enter The Guardsman, Sons Of Don Juan and most recently A Moon To Dance By (with Jane Alexander at the Pittsburgh Playhouse).
