From Broadway

Lucy Seward, whose father is the doctor in charge of an English sanitorium, has been attacked by some mysterious illness. Dr. Van Helsing, a specialist, believes that the girl is the victim of a vampire, a sort of ghost that goes about at night sucking blood from its victims. The vampire is at last found to be a certain Count Dracula, whose ghost is at last laid to rest in a striking and novel manner. The play is intended for all who love thrills in the theater, and is appropriate for all groups.
"Pure escape and great fun." - New York Post

"An evening of high class fun." - Newsweek

Dracula was first presented on Broadway by Horace Liveright at the Fulton Theatre in New York City on October 5, 1927. It was directed by Ira Hards.
