If you know who Norma Desmond is, you will laugh your butt off at this show! Funny, witty - all six in our group LOVED it. Do yourself a favor and watch Sunset Blvd before you go. It will give you a better sense of appreciation for the talented...continued

A little slow in spots. Some great one liners though. Needs a bit of redirection.

Quotes & Highlights

“A new, vampire-themed, cross-dressing spoof of the 1950s classic film Sunset Boulevard.” -Metromix Chicago
“It’s snarky, pop-culture savvy, and it’s fast…You’ve got to love this show.” —Center Stage Chicago
“Ed Jones as Dragula and Michael Miller as Max deliver deliciously over-the-top performances. (Playwright) Duane Scott Cerny’s vulgar wit is… razor sharp.” -Chicago Reader
“Michael Miller’s performance is the highlight of the night… Ed Jones radiates the joy of Dragula… Encompasses the absolute best aspect of drag performance: Be who you are, and love what you do. Luckily for us, this cheerful cast does just that.” —Chicago Theater Blog

Description

The Creators of 2009’s Cult Hit Mrs. Hyde and the Case of the Gaslight Buggerings unearth an outrageous new parody.

The Romanian recession has consumed a great star of yesteryear…perhaps “the greatest star of all.” Can Dragula re-invent her own future or can it be re-written by the flirtations of a handsome young stranger? Can her loyal Manservant protect her from both the outside world and the grifters from within? And is being the “undead” really just the ultimate downer?

Part spoof, part homage, part mash-up… with some garlic just to give it bite.

Starring Ed Jones & Michael Miller With David Besky, Dan Hickey, Craig Conover & Lori Lee Written by Duane Scott Cerny. Directed by Mark Contorn.
