Middlesex County College & The Raconteur present
NOSFERATU: THE VAMPYRE
8 PM, Thurs - Sat, OCT 21 - 30
(special midnight show on Mischief Night)
Based on the 1923 German Expressionist film by F. W. Murnau (in turn, based on Bram Stoker's 1897 novel Dracula), Alex Dawson's stage adaptation additionally draws on Chinese shadow-play, Shakespeare, and explorer/orientalist Richard Burton's translation of Hindu vampire fables to tell the story of the moon-headed, rat-fanged Count Orlock looking for love even as he brings a boatload of Black Death to a German village. From the team that brought you last year's unsettling hit A CLOCKWORK ORANGE, with makeup by Tom Savini alumnus Dan Diana, the production, which opens with the terrifying image of the eponymous Nos suspended fifteen feet above the audience, will make even the swooniest Twilight fan forget RobPat and his teen beat vamps. The Studio Theater @ MCC 2600 Woodbridge Ave., Edison, NJ 08818. All tickets $10. Click HERE for more info and to purchase online.
