The world’s most popular vampire for centuries, Count Dracula has recently seen an influx of competition from 21st-century Hollywood and television. Reclaiming his title of world’s most provocative coffin dweller, the Transylvanian bloodsucker emerges from the darkness for a Maggie Pangrazio–directed production of Dracula, a famous story originally penned by Bram Stoker and later adapted for the stage by William McNulty. The magically manipulative and sharply fanged Dracula charms audiences before giving them the heebie-jeebies in his attempt to relocate from Transylvania to England, not without resistance from the suspicious Professor Van Helsing. Cast members Brian Michael Riley and David Victor portray Dracula and his Victorian entourage, which––in its day––attracted hordes of paparazzi sketch artists.
