The First Adaptation Advised by the Stoker Family since 1927s Broadway Premiere Starring Bela Lugosi! In the early nineteen twenties, Florence Balcombe, widow of DRACULAs author, gave authorization to theatrical producer Hamilton Deane to co-opt Bram Stokers novel for a stage play. For years since, the story has been adapted into dramatic form, but never in collaboration with the family Stoker. Until now. DRACULA of Transylvania made its world premiere in 2013. This dramatization by Christofer Cook, with Dacre Stokers advisement, gives the whole story in all its beautifully- terrifying grandeur. An intricately crafted script, Dracula of Transylvania offers a satisfying live alternative to decades of cinematic gore and computer-generated mayhemwithout sacrificing suspense, thrills, chills, or good old-fashioned action. - August Krickel SC Press Association 2014 Award Recipient DRACULA, of Transylvania is no milk-toast, drawing-room, murder mystery. This is Bram Stokers complete saga. A horror-adventure that takes us from the wilds of the dark, mountainous Carpathians to the cobblestone streets of polite London. The epic play is perfect for professional, regional, and community theatres. But, beware! This version of the venerable yarn has fangs, sharp as stakes!

For many in the West, Romania is synonymous with Count Dracula. Since the publication of Bram Stoker's famous novel in 1897 Transylvania (and by extension, Romania) has become inseparable in the Western imagination with Dracula, vampires and the supernatural. Moreover, since the late 1960s Western tourists have travelled to Transylvania on their own searches for the literary and supernatural roots of the Dracula myth. Such 'Dracula tourism' presents Romania with a dilemma. On one hand, Dracula is Romania's unique selling point and has considerable potential to be exploited for economic gain. On the other hand, the whole notion of vampires and the supernatural is starkly at odds with Romania's self-image as a modern, developed, European state. This book examines the way that Romania has negotiated Dracula tourism over the past four decades. During the communist period (up to 1989) the Romanian state did almost nothing to encourage such tourism but reluctantly tolerated it. However, some discrete local initiatives were developed to cater for Dracula enthusiasts that operated at the margins of legality in a communist state. In the post-communist period (after 1989) any attempt to censor Dracula has disappeared and the private sector in Romania has been swift to exploit the commercial possibilities of the Count. However, the Romanian state remains ambivalent about Dracula and continues to be reluctant to encourage or promote Dracula tourism. As such Romania's dilemma with Dracula remains unresolved.
