BWW Review: The Intimate DRACULA at Carmine Boutique Provides Powerful, Personal Thrills
by Matt Tamanini - Oct 12, 2016

'Blood is too precious a thing to be spilled,' the titular character says in the production of Dracula playing at Carmine Boutique in Orlando through October 15th. Directed by Jeremy Seghers, this ensemble piece by playwright Steven Dietz brings to life Bram Stoker's classic characters with intimate specificity that brings the story's inherent horror home in ways far more personal than in most films and adaptations of the same source material. While the production includes a requisite level of blood, the most haunting terrors that it supplies are born not of traditional Halloween fear, but of the strains on the relationships between the characters and the people that they hold most dear.
