Robert Cuccioli is known by many for his riveting, critically acclaimed TONY nominated performance as mad scientist, Dr. Jekyll, and his sinister alter ego, Mr. Hyde, in the Frank Wildhorn/Leslie Bricusse smash Broadway hit musical Jekyll & Hyde, for which he also received the Drama Desk, Outer Critics Circle, and FANY Awards for Outstanding Actor in a Musical. Prior to his successful Broadway run, he dazzled audiences, as well as critics alike across America in the show’s national touring company. He was honored with Chicago’s prestigious Joseph Jefferson Award during Jekyll & Hyde’s successful 34-week tour.

In 2012, Cuccioli returned to Broadway, lighting up the stage with his high-flying performance in the dual role of Dr. Norman Osborn/The Green Goblin in the rock musical Spider-Man: Turn Off The Dark. Until COVID-19 rocked the nation and the world he was set to open off-Broadway in the Irish Repertory Theatre's production of A Touch of the Poet starring as Con Melody. He was seen the previous 2019 off-Broadway season as Caesar in the acclaimed production of Caesar & Cleopatra (NY Times Critic's Pick), and the Red Bull Theatre's production of The White Devil (NY Times Critic's Pick).

While acting has always been in his blood, it wasn’t Robert’s first career. The Long Island native graduated from St. John’s University with a Bachelor’s Degree in Finance and worked as a financial consultant on Wall Street at the prestigious investment firm E.F. Hutton for three years while pursuing a full-time performing career.

At age 23, he auditioned and received an offer to join The Light Opera of Manhattan. Starting in the chorus, his work brought him starring roles in the most beloved Gilbert & Sullivan operettas and such classics as The Merry Widow, The New Moon, The Desert Song, and The Vagabond King.

Robert 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 shared the Outer Critics Circle Award for "Brilliant Ensemble Performance" in the highly-acclaimed Kander and Ebb review, And The World Goes ‘Round. He followed that with the critically acclaimed, highly successful off-Broadway production of The Rothschilds where he played Nathan at Circle in the Square (downtown). His connection to that show remained strong through the years, and in 2015 he was asked to star as Mayer Rothschild in the newly-minted critically acclaimed revisal Rothschild and Sons at the York Theatre. That production was brought to the off-West End London stage in 2018 where Robert garnered an Offie nomination for "Leading Actor in a Musical".
