Dracula (adapted by Dietz)
by Different Stages
Nov. 20 - Dec. 12, 2015
This new adaptation by Steven Dietz restores the suspense and seduction of Bram Stoker's classic novel to the stage. As Count Dracula begins to exert his will upon the residents of London, they try to piece together the clues of his appearances -in a valiant attempt to save themselves from a hideous fate. Rich with both humor and horror, this play paints a wickedly theatrical picture of Stoker's famous vampire.
