Based on the novel by Bram Stoker

Before Twilight, before 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 the 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.

BWW Review: OUT LOUD Theatre Brings Intense and Stunning DRACULA to Life
by Robert Barossi - May 9, 2016

Whatever our own preferences are for storytelling forms and devices, there are countless others, often used in successful ways.
