Broadway: Vorhang auf für “Dracula”, das neue Frank Wildhorn-Musical

Dracula, the Musical“, will be the first new musical of the 2004-2005 Broadway season, previewing starting July 12, followed by an opening at the Belasco Theatre Aug. 5. Producers Dodger Stage Holding and Joop van den Ende, in association with Clear Channel Entertainment, announced the Broadway bow of the Frank Wildhorn show March 25.
The production will be directed by two-time Tony Award winner Des McAnuff (Big River, The Who’s Tommy), and choreographed by Mindy Cooper. Dracula has a book by Tony Award-winner Christopher Hampton (Sunset Blvd., Les Liaisons Dangereuses), lyrics by Academy Award and Tony Award-winner Don Black (Sunset Blvd, Aspects of Love) and music by Tony-nominated composer Frank Wildhorn (Jekyll & Hyde, The Scarlet Pimpernel, The Civil War).
According to the announcement, “Dracula, the Musical, “is a new musical vision of romance, terror and temptation based on the Bram Stoker classic novel. Set in Europe at the end of the Victorian Age, the production follows Dracula’s lust for new blood and a small band of mortal men and women who must face his overwhelming seduction and mesmeric supernatural powers.”
“Dracula” will star Tom Hewitt as the Transylvanian neck nibbler. Hewitt, who last appeared on Broadway in “The Rocky Horror Show,” will likely be joined by Len Cariou, as Van Helsing, and Melissa Errico, as Mina. [Stories: 1 2]
