At its New York City premiere, patrons stood in line in a blizzard for tickets. At its Australian premiere, every seat for every performance was sold, and one critic noted, "the performance was one of the most enjoyable I've seen . . . My only other experience of the Dracula play . . . was the one that Sir Robert Helpmann directed . . . I can honestly say I enjoyed this one much more. It exhibited a superb sense of humor." Melodic, rollicking and hilarious, the show is also an economist's dream: one set, startling but simple special effects, and piano only accompaniment. This delightful spoof of the classic horror tale is an unparalleled romp from start to finish. The author here unveils his merits as a superbly adept composer to the joy of performers and audiences worldwide.
