A Dracula Story by Ben Hernandez
WRITTEN BY: Ben Hernandez
DIRECTED BY: Steve Rothman
VENUE: State Playhouse
PERFORMANCE DATES: November 13 - 20, 2021
Playwright Ben Hernandez has taken the timeless tale of Bram Stoker's Dracula and hurtled it into our unpredictable modern times. It’s a dash of Boyle Heights, a splash of Transylvania, plus a twist of pandemic panic! Themes of gender & sexuality, gentrification, and the age-old clash between tradition and change combine to make this new Dracula story timely and thrilling.
