As Halloween approaches, Count Dracula’s social calendar quickly fills up. This October, the oft-caped and immaculately fanged Transylvanian nobleman books dinner dates with guests at five area restaurants. Summoned by actor Allen Smith, this iconic, no-frills vampire plays the starring role alongside a cast and crew that includes the brave Van Helsing, the beautiful Lucy Westenra, and the lunatic Renfield. The Salty Dinner Theatre has flavored this classic Gothic tale with a satirical seasoning that they assure will “give your funny bone goosebumps,” much like a standup comic performing in a walk-in freezer.
Salty Dinner Theater
Salty Dinner Theater, which ABC 4 describes as “bringing a twist to traditional on-stage classics,” combines professional actors and proficient chefs to stage productions performed at area eateries. Audience members gobble supper as performers interact with them before and during the production. Regularly inhabiting Dry Creek Steakhouse, The Old Spaghetti Factory, Joe Morley’s Smoked Beef & Bar-B-Q, and Mimi’s Café, among other locales, the show-accompanying meals range from scratch-made baked lasagna with ground beef and pork to a pound of succulent smoked-beef brisket.
