We are neck deep (yep, I did that) in rehearsals for our world premiere version of Dracula: Prince of Blood and chomping at the bit to get into previews ahead of opening night on Sept. 8. The adaptation is from the hand of Commonweal professional resident ensemble member and playwright Scott Dixon and is based on the classic horror story Dracula by Bram Stoker. Here’s a little taste of what’s in store for you when you join us for a performance.
Dracula: Prince of Blood
I am thrilled and humbled to say that I have the pleasure of portraying The Lord of Vampires in Scott’s version of the classic horror story. And when I say “pleasure,” that is exactly what I mean. I have played another pure villain in my time and, honestly, playing the bad guy can be much more satisfying than portraying the hero and that is truly the case in this instance. Scott has written a delightfully scary and suspenseful horror story that I’m certain Bram Stoker would be proud of. I do hope that you will make plans to join us at some point. Thanks for reading and I’ll see you at the theatre—Jeremy.
