The reviews are rolling in for Gordon Greenberg and Steve Rosen's Dracula, A Comedy of Terrors, which began previews Off-Broadway at New World Stages September 4 ahead of a September 18 opening night. The limited 18-week run will continue through January 7, 2024.
The five-person company includes Jordan Boatman (Medea), Arnie Burton (The 39 Steps), James Daly (Letterkenny), Ellen Harvey (How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying), and Andrew Keenan-Bolger (Newsies).
Described as "lightning fast," the work reimagines Bram Stoker's classic vampire tale, recasting Dracula as a pansexual Gen-Z Count in the midst of an existential crisis.

Greenberg directs the Off-Broadway production after staging earlier runs at Maltz Jupiter Theatre in Florida, Capital Repertory Theatre in Albany, and Segal Centre for Performing Arts in Montreal. The farce also became a podcast radio play in May 2020, with a cast including Christopher Sieber, Laura Benanti, and John Stamos.
The NYC premiere is not a replica of earlier stagings. The production features scenic design by Tijana Bjelajac, costume design by Tristan Raines, lighting design by Rob Denton, sound design by Victoria Deiorio, and wig and hair design by Ashley Rae Callahan. Morgan Holbrook is the production stage manager, and casting is by JZ Casting.
Drew & Dane Productions is producing the Off-Broadway bow, with Dori Berinstein serving as executive producer.
