Dance of the Vampires
Scheduled to Open Fall 2002 !

The setting: We are in a Transylvanian graveyard near a village with an unpronouncable name. It is three nights before Halloween, 1880-somehting. Sarah, the beautiful teenage daughter of the local innkeeper, is out picking mushrooms when a pack of very cool young vampires appears out of the mist, dancing with rapturous abandon.

Sarah is entranced as a coffin rises from the ground containing the mesmerizing and extremely cool Count Von Krolock - played by none other than Tony-award winner Michael Crawford.

The Count sings to Sarah seductively and promises to return for her at the total eclipse of the moon--when Sarah, in exhange for a small bite, can become Queen of the Vampires and rule the world. How can any small-ime girl resist? But then arrives Professor Abronsius, a rather intensely wacky vampire killer, with his handsome if sweetly dim assistant Alfred. Alfred is istantly smitten by Sarah and vice versa. Torn between Alfred and the Count, Sarah runs off to Krolock's castle, pursued by Alfred and Abronsius.

There are ecstatic love duets, close encounters, unbridled dancing, wild comedy and, of course, bats and a madman named Boris. Sarah has to choose between earhly love with Alfred, or eternal passion with Krolock in the Vampire State Building. The climactic vampire dance crupts as the moon starts to eclipse, and everybody somehow manages to find happiness...Transylvania-style.

Phantom of the Opera

“Like no other star in Britain, Crawford is a definition of the theatre at its most sentimental and its most courageous…The Phantom has more than its fair share of breathtaking theatrical moments…but in the end, you have to care about the Phantom himself, for his is the music of the night” Sheridan Morley, Playbill
