Dracula! The Musical? by Rick Abbot is a mini-musical that is a cross between Mel Brooks and Gilbert and Sullivan. The comedy styling and musical arrangements remind one very much of other comedic musical masterpieces like Nunsense.
What could be more pleasant than a quiet evening at home — home being the family insane asylum — especially when you’re expecting Hungarian royalty for dinner? But if you do invite Count Dracula over, be very, very specific about what you offer him to drink…or it could be a very draining evening. This all-singing, all-dancing extravaganza starts with an unlikely premise and proceeds to a ridiculous conclusion featuring the previously unknown virtues of pot roast. In other words, a perfect way to enjoy an autumn evening in celebration of the spirit of Halloween.
