Hudson Theatre Works Presents A Reading Of THE NECROMANCERS: A PENNY DREADFUL WITH MUSIC
Bram Stoker, author of Dracula, and Sir Henry Irving, famed British stage actor an inspiration for Stoker's title character, held a friendship that spanned more then twenty years. Irving was the leading actor at the Royal Lyceum Theater in London and Stoker the business manager. Their friendship was fraught with egos, jealousies and fierce competitive natures. The Necromancers weaves fact and fantasy together to present the last days of Irving's life.
