DRACULA OFF-BROADWAY REVIEWS
Opening Night: January 5, 2011
Synopsis: Dracula is the classic Gothic drama about the power of seduction and the nature of true love. When the mysterious Count Dracula takes an interest in the beautiful, young Lucy, who suffers from horrific dreams and a strange illness, he arouses the suspicions of her fiancé, Jonathan Harker, and Professor Abraham van Helsing. Following a series of grisly murders and unexplained occurrences, the men fear Dracula may be an undead creature who prowls the darkness and preys upon innocent souls.
NEW YORK TIMES REVIEW:
"Sadly, this comically creaky production, directed by Paul Alexander and featuring an unfortunate George Hearn as the vampire hunter and the Italian actor Michel Altieri as the caped count, makes the material feel about as immortal as a fruit fly. The creature this lumbering staging most resembles is not one of those comely young vampires with six-pack abs zigzagging at warp speed across screens today, but a lumbering, dead-eyed zombie fresh from the crypt.

"In the ever-growing glut of vampire stories that permeates pop culture, some things are better left undead. This truth is sadly evident in the new off-Broadway revival of the classic play "Dracula," a disappointingly reserved production that is mostly lifeless — and not in a good way."
"The woefully inept drama "Dracula," which opened off- Broadway last night, is as close as we get to dinner theater in New York. There's no prime rib, but plenty of grating cheese. While it prompts unintended chuckles -- when a small plastic bat flies over the set, or when the dying bloodsucker flails about in his cardboard coffin -- what it is, mostly, is tedious. Even the great George Hearn, as Dracula nemesis Van Helsing, looks as if he's counting the minutes until the curtain call."
"Looking like a lightweight Fabio as Dracula — certainly more toothy than fanged — a hollow-cheeked Michel Altieri sports a vaguely Italian accent and long, flowing tresses as he stiffly stalks Emily Bridges' statuesque Lucy. As for the rest of Alexander's misguided company — why waste your time in reading about their futile attempts to make this dear old bat of a melodrama fly?"
"Elaborately tacky, unintentionally hilarious and totally bloodless, a new Off-Broadway production makes you suspect that you're being "Punk'd." While it's not an 'oax -- as the Cockney servant in the play would say -- it's an 'owler."
