What the Critics are saying about Dracula

“Actors’ 2014 installment of the now-19-year tradition premiered last week and it is everything you could want out of the most top-flight Halloween entertainment: spectacle, arch Gothic grandiosity, and more than enough moments to make you shriek with horror – and delight.” – Todd Ziegler, The Voice-Tribune. Full Review

“A few years ago, I said I’d pass on taking up the tradition. After this year, I’m wondering if reservations are available for 2015 yet.” – Todd Ziegler, Voice-Tribune

“The reason behind its success is not difficult to understand: from the moment the lights dim until the last seconds of the final scene, the cast and crew of Dracula transform a smaller theatre into a harrowing vampire hunt.” – Rebecca Ball, Full Review

“All the actors, whether “living” or not, seemed completely at ease with their character, so much so that it was easy to become immersed in the story.” – Rebecca Ball,

“Under McNulty’s direction, the production is swiftly-paced but emotionally sound, and while it contains few surprises for returning audiences, “Dracula” is a time-honored Louisville tradition that has signaled the beginning of long nights for 19 years and counting for good reason. “- Erin Keane, WFPL.

“The show is coming to Louisville just in time for Halloween. There’s no better way to get yourself in the mood for thrills and chills than to see Dracula live onstage. Be warned: he will be searching for victims.” – Joe Hayden,
