Hunger & Thirst Theatre brings the infamous villain of Gothic literature into the 21st century with its new take on Bram Stoker's haunting novel.

Curious about how far humanity has progressed, Count Dracula ventures to contemporary America to expand his territory and conquer the modern-day female. Using their wits, whatever courage they have left, and, of course, their smartphones, a band of friends do their best to take down the Master himself. Along the way, they learn about the monsters lurking in all of us. Snag half-price tickets by donating blood to the New York Blood Center (really!).

"Camp mingled with straight storytelling...The script and the direction do a good job of keeping us engaged between surprises. Quick pacing, short scenes, and clever, cinematic staging help keep things interesting. We don’t come to care a whole lot about these characters...But sympathetic characters aren’t usually the point of old-fashioned horror stories, and though it’s filled with smartphones and laptops, this ghoulish tale retains a 19th-century ring. To its benefit." Full Review

Theatre is Easy

"Pacing wise, the production is a bit slow. It takes a decent amount of time for the plot to truly kick off and the action to ramp up, although the exposition itself is enjoyable...This ending doesn't show a rather crucial scene and feels somewhat unsatisfying after becoming so deeply engaged in the story...Overall, while the play’s structure itself is somewhat flawed, the great performance work and sultry-scary mood make this piece a good Halloween season date night thrill."

See it if You love scary stuff but also like things with a good laugh! If you like a good mixture you'll definitely like the show for sure.

Don't see it if You don't like to get scared because there are places in the play in which characters jump out or just appear.
