Overview

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.
