Scheduled to be released in four installments, the first installment will be released on Friday morning, May 1 everywhere podcasts are available.

To celebrate the launch of Dracula, A Comedy of Terrors, cast members from the radio play will gather together for a live event on Friday, May 1 at 8 PM as part of Broadway Podcast Network's Town Hall series. Viewers can join in as some of Broadway's biggest stars discuss the return of this vintage form of performance, and what listeners can expect from the series.

Dracula, Comedy of Terrors follows the legendary Count Dracula as he travels to England to seduce the woman of his dreams, stirring up danger, magic, sensuality and all manner of silliness. Created in the spirit of The 39-Steps and developed at Chicago Shakespeare Theatre and the Maltz Jupiter Theatre, Dracula, A Comedy of Terrors reimagines the epic horror story of Count Dracula as a lightning fast, laugh-out-loud comedy. Featuring a cast of 14 of Broadway's biggest stars, this radio play adaptation created expressly for BPN to benefit The Actors Fund and Broadway Cares, this new way of way creating theater is reminiscent of the vintage broadcasts of the 1940's. It is edited by Bart Fassbender (Soft Power, Bloody Bloody Andrew Jackson), has an original score and soundscape by 7-time Joseph Jefferson Award winner Victoria Deiorio and is associate directed by Marty Maguire.
