Broadway favorite Taylor Trensch (Camelot, Dear Evan Hansen) will join Gordon Greenberg and Steve Rosen‘s Dracula, A Comedy of Terrors for one week only, from December 27 through January 2, 2024, filling in for current star Andrew Keenan-Bolger as Harker and Others. The Monty Python-style send-up of the Bram Stoker classic is currently haunting Off-Broadway's New World Stages through January 7, 2024.

Trensch will join a cast led by Jordan Boatman (Medea), Arnie Burton (The 39 Steps), James Daly (Letterkenny), and Ellen Harvey (How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying).

Described as “lightning fast,” the work reimagines Bram Stoker's classic vampire tale by recasting Dracula as a pansexual Gen-Z Count in the midst of an existential crisis. 

Greenberg directs the Off-Broadway production after staging earlier runs at Maltz Jupiter Theatre in Florida, Capital Repertory Theatre in Albany, and Segal Centre for Performing Arts in Montreal. The farce also became a podcast radio play in May 2020, with a cast including Christopher Sieber, Laura Benanti, and John Stamos.

The NYC premiere is not a replica of earlier stagings. The production features scenic design by Tijana Bjelajac, costume design by Tristan Raines, lighting design by Rob Denton, sound design by Victoria Deiorio, and wig and hair design by Ashley Rae Callahan. Morgan Holbrook is the production stage manager, and casting is by JZ Casting.

Drew & Dane Productions is producing the Off-Broadway bow, with Dori Berinstein serving as executive producer.
