What did our critic think of DRACULA at Synetic Theatre? Synetic Theatre's signature style of silent, motion filled acting lends itself well to this adaptation of Bram Stoker's 1897 novel of the same name. Dracula is the tale of a wounded warrior granted eternal life as a vampire during the Turkish Invasion. Four hundred years later, upon the arrival of John, an English solicitor to Dracula's secluded Transylvanian lair, the adventure begins. True to its name this show is spooky and sensual with a tinge of a rock n' roll.

Given that this was my first time visiting the circus any circus in well over a decade and the first time attending Cirque du Soleil in person, I was not sure what to expect. However, I was prepared to be pleasantly surprised. Under the big blue tent in Tyson Square there are lots of refreshments and even a VIP lounge with separate entrance and open bar. If I were you I would pay the extra to sit up front because the closer you are to the stage in this aspect the easier it is to be immersed in the show. That being said, the famous French-Canadian circus begins in the audience with classical mimes thematically appropriate costuming as pre-show entertainment.
