Dracula – Play
February 3 – March 3
Playhouse in the Park – The Rouse Theatre
$33.50 and up
Bram Stoker’s Dracula comes back to life from February 3 to March 3 at Playhouse in the Park.
Lifelong friends Mina and Lucy share intimate details about the men in their lives. Dr Seward works to unlock the mystery of Renfield’s strange affliction with the help of his friend Van Helsing, who carries her own secret. Jonathan Harker returns from Transylvania with a dark disclosure.
As tensions rise, temptation lures them into double lives as they unmask one man, Count Dracula.
Dracula is Created by Vanessa Severo (Frida…A Self Portrait) and Playhouse Associate Artistic Director Joanie Schultz; this bold, highly theatrical re-telling breathes new life and new blood into the most famous vampire story of all time and pulses with humor, humanity, and blood-curdling thrills.
