I was at Chicago TARDIS this last weekend and heard Colin Baker rhapsodize about the production and all its 21st century touches, such as Jonathan and Mina communicating via e-mail. He also told of the people in charge of the costumes asking him not to stand so close when he stakes Lucy because they were fed up with all the blood getting all over his outfit.I wish I could have seen the play; it sounds very good indeed. Maybe they'll bring it here to the States someday.As to something said in this review, have we actual documentation from Bram Stoker himself saying that he meant his book to be in any way about sexual repression? That seems an awfully "modern" notion.
dracula you look ugly
I saw the performance when it was down in Southend. It was enjoyable, even though it was highly modernised. Parts were scary, but I found myself laughing a lot too.

I saw the play as part of my Drama course, but enojyed it greatly. Although it was modernised, Bryony did amazingly well to keep the atmosphere and stay true to the original novel. Wonderful cast, wonderful effects, a splendid way to spend the night at the theatre, and everyone involved is to be congratulated for such a wonderful adaption.
Saw it in Cardiff and enjoyed it immensely. It's not scary in the blood and gore sense but it's very sinister. Great set, great special effects, great acting. Colin Baker, Hywel Simons, Richard Bremmer and Ben Keaton stand out in the memory. Go see it...
Hi, A brilliant interview with Colin... Booked tickets to go and see Dracula on Thursday 12th at The New Theatre, Cardiff. Can't wait!!!
Colin Baker is a great actor, and such great man. I look forward to seeing him in dracula.

I saw it on tuesday 26th april at the theatre royal in plymouth, and i thought it was fantastic. one of the most inventive and original pieces of drama i have seen for a long time, and some great black humour. i urge anyone who can to go and see it.

Would this be the world premiere of Dracula that has just finished it's run at the Lowry in Salford?
very good interview and i saw the play (which had some great special effects) at the Lowry theatre,here in Manchester where i met Colin backstage who is always good to talk to.
Colin Baker as Van Helsing. Colin is a great actor, although I cant quite imagine a large figure playing the part.
Great interview on the site with Colin Baker! Really looking forward to seeing this, got tickets for its performance in Cardiff in May,always a joy to see Colin in something, great actor and should make the play definetly worth going to see.
