Spamalot meets Lestat in this hilarious new musical fable where immortality isn't all it's cracked up to be!

Count Benedict Von Klapp, a Vampire and avid theatre devotee, living in Manhattan, is frustrated that Vampires are so often misrepresented on the Musical Theatre Stage. Determined to rectify the "curse of the Vampire Musical," he concocts a plan to put together his own creative team of Vampires and produce the first successful Vampire Musical on Broadway.

The situation is made more complicated and comical by not only the demands of putting on a Broadway musical but by the limitations of being vampires -- filled with backstage theatre folk drama, we follow the team through auditions, rehearsals and previews to the nerve-wracking opening night.
