About the show

CSC presents Kate Hamill’s new, feminist adaptation of the classic horror tale. "Dracula" will be performed in repertory with CSC's new adaptation of "Frankenstein." More…

From the show:

Both terrifying and riotous, Kate Hamill’s Dracula confronts the sexism in Bram Stoker’s original work and subjugates it as a smart and disquieting feminist revenge fantasy. Kate’s signature style and postmodern wit upends this familiar tale of Victorian vampires and drives a stake through the heart of toxic masculinity.

Broad humor, Imaginative, Edgy, Redundant/long, Riveting

See it if for Matthew Amendt as a wildly magnetic Dracula. Gr costumes, strg acting, annoying curtain. Dark parts thrill/chill. Lapine is a genius.

Don't see it if you get nightmares. Or want a tight script (needs cuts as of 1st prevw: 2.5 hrs) Some humor misses. Sightlines iffy. Staging/acting dazzle.

Clever, Slow, Indulgent, Disappointing

See it if Hamill's script has witty moments in her attempt to find contemporary resonance in the classic. The cast works hard with what they're given.

Don't see it if it's overlong; many of the satiric, anachronistic bits don't land. The tone is inconsistent - should we be scared? amused? angry at the

Also misogyny? Her observations are trenchant - it's just that they don't r... Read more Read less
