Dracula (adapted by Dietz)
by Zach Theatre
May. 28 - May. 29 (2019)
Exquisite and provocative, Stephen Dietz’s new adaptation of Bram Stoker’s Dracula is a sensual fantasy with a surprising twist — a bold heroine who dares to defy the ruler of the night. Mina, the object of Dracula’s desire, is in charge and with steadfast courage sleuths to uncover the mystery. Seductive, romantic and empowering, this foray to the dark side is a juicy date-night, destined to become the hottest cult classic at ZACH.
