Broadway’s Taylor Trensch will join the company of Dracula, A Comedy of Terrors, now playing off-Broadway at New World Stages. The new play, a sendup of Bram Stoker’s horror classic, is written by Gordon Greenberg and Steve Rosen and directed by Greenberg. For one week, from December 27 to January 2, 2024, Trensch will play the role of Harker and others, currently performed by Andrew Keenan-Bolger. The production’s limited engagement will end January 7.
Described as a “lightning-fast comedic reimagining that celebrates goth, camp, sexuality, and the magic of live theater,” Dracula, A Comedy of Terrors features “a pansexual gen-Z Count Dracula in the midst of an existential crisis.”
Trensch was last seen on Broadway in Lincoln Center’s revival of Camelot. His long list of Broadway credits includes To Kill a Mockingbird, Evan Hansen in Dear Evan Hansen, Hello Dolly! and The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Nighttime.
Dracula, A Comedy of Terrors features scenic design and puppets by Tijana Bjelajac, costumes by Tristan Raines, lighting design by Rob Denton, original music and sound design by Victoria Deiorio and wigs and hair design by Ashley Ra.
