Before Edward Cullen, there was Dracula. The classic gothic thriller about the power of seduction and the nature of true love.
Dracula is the classic Gothic drama about the power of seduction and the nature of true love. When the mysterious Count Dracula takes an interest in the beautiful, young Lucy, who suffers from horrific dreams and a strange illness, he arouses the suspicions of her fiancé, Jonathan Harker, and Professor Abraham van Helsing. Following a series of grisly murders and unexplained occurrences, the men fear Dracula may be an undead creature who prowls the darkness and preys upon innocent souls.
Adapted by Hamilton Deane and John L. Balderston, Dracula premiered in New York in 1927, starring Bela Lugosi. Dracula was last seen on Broadway in 1977, starring Frank Langella. Winning two Tony Awards, including Best Revival, the production ran for more than 900 performances and inspired the 1979 film adaptation featuring Mr. Langella and Sir Laurence Olivier.
Bram Stoker’s horror novel, which itself is based on European folklore, has been an international phenomenon since it was first published in 1897. The novel’s influence on the popularity of vampires has been singularly responsible for numerous stage, film, and television adaptations, including the modern-day vampires of Anne Rice’s Vampire Chronicles, Stephenie Meyer’s Twilight series, HBO’s True Blood, and L.J. Smith’s The Vampire Diaries.
