Bram Stoker’s Dracula perfect Halloween Treat at CSC

“Even if you are very familiar with the story from the book, or the many tv and film versions, this clever staging and impressive cast will provide a properly chillingly experience.– Rick Busciglio (NJ Footlights)

Audiences and critics alike are raving over Bram Stoker’s Dracula, written and directed by Charles Morey and running now through October 28 in the Lackland Performing Arts Center. Before Twilight and True Blood, only one vampire commanded “the children of the night.” In this blood-thirsty tale of unholy terror, Count Dracula slips into Victorian London with a cargo of his native Transylvanian soil - so he can rest between victims. The city seems helpless against his frightful power, and only one man, Dr. Van Helsing, can stop the carnage. But to do this, he must uncover the vampire’s lair and pierce his heart with a wooden stake.
