Think Saturday Night Live’s (SNL) antics and comedy combined with the classic character of Dracula and you have this raucous play that will leave you laughing long after it’s over. The production of Dracula, A Comedy of Terrors is here in NYC at New World Stages until January 7, 2024. This isn’t a typical spoof of Dracula, this play is gender-bending, sexy and irreverent!
So what can possibly be so funny about Dracula? Picture this, an English real estate agent heads over to Transylvania to meet a mysterious new client, Count Dracula!
But vampire hunter Jean Van Helsing shows up to hunt down Dracula, chasing him from Transylvania to the British countryside to London and back. The stunts that ensue are witty and hilarious!
James Daly plays Dracula and Arnie Burton plays Van Helsing. The ensemble also includes Andrew Keenan-Bolger, Jordan Boatman and Ellen Harvey. The play is written by Steve Rosen and Gordon Greenberg, and directed by Greenberg who has directed the revival of Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf?, Crime and Punishment, A Comedy and more.
Catch this production at New World Stages located at 340 West 50th Street in Midtown. Broadway World calls it, “A brilliant new send-up of Bram Stoker’s gothic horror novel.”
Spooky season may be over, but Fangs-giving is right around the corner so don’t miss out on catching Dracula, A Comedy of Terrors. Tickets are currently available!
