Zombies rule on TV, but they’ll never outshine vampires on stage. So Cincinnati Shakespeare Company will celebrate Halloween with the Emperor of Darkness—Dracula. The script is adapted by contemporary playwright Steven Dietz, but the foreboding Victorian setting is intact, along with the lovely Lucy and Mina, crazy Renfield, fatuous Van Helsing, and the seductive, terrifyingly fanged Count himself.
Plus, Cincy Shakes’s new home allows for special effects, including—cue ominous drumroll—flying. Beats the heck out of the walking dead.
