(In a good way)

LOS ANGELES, CA - Like a good book, Dracula, the Musical Nightmare, enwraps you in its new twist of Bram Stoker's Dracula. The play within a play works wonderfully and takes the audience back to the grand tradition of vaudeville.  As the production's Emcee, Chauncey DeVille has manic energy that drives the entire evening. His back-up

singers are particularly amusing in their various supporting roles. With genuine 'creepy' moments, Dracula the Musical certainly captures the right atmosphere for Halloween. - R. Harker


If adding musical numbers to one of the best disaster movies of our times sounds like an evening of fun, Poseidon Adventure: The Musical delivers.  The show remains faithful to the 1972 movie with each of the actors capturing the spirit of the original actors who made the movie a classic, many of which were Academy Award winners.  But the evening isn't all laughs; musical numbers, like "In the Water, I'm a very Skinny Lady" sung by the Shelley Winters character invokes honest moments of pathos.  You've got to give a lot of credit to those who produced the show, just wait 'til you see how the tidal wave flips the ship in a black box theater. - R. Harker
