I just got back from seeing "Dracula" at the Springer Opera House tonight. We had to slog through pouring rain to get there.
But getting there was worth it.
It wasn't a sold-out house, but there were a good number of people there.
It was really good.
Unfortunately, you have just one more night to see it. So if you haven't seen it, go. The final show is at 7:30 p.m. Saturday. Tickets are $10-$35.
The role of Renfield is such a good one, and Adam Montague was really, really good. Actually, Paul Pierce's casting was very good.
I went with Nancy Shores, who was one of my favorite local actors. I don't know why she quit doing shows, but you should have seen her in "Nunsense."
I kind of knew that she loved vampires, but didn't know how much she loved them.
As we were leaving, I saw Daniel Stargel, who played the wicked count. I introduced them and she asked him to have a picture taken with her. Of course, Daniel agreed. She whipped out her cell phone, but I said I had my camera and took the picture.
She's so thrilled. I'll download the pictures when I get home and e-mail them to both.
It's truly a good show, and the set and lighting were very good. The music was atmospheric and, of course, you'd expect weather like tonight for a show like this.
It was perfect.
