Taylor Trensch to Join DRACULA, A COMEDY OF TERRORS
Here's some news you’re going to want to sink your teeth into! The cast of Dracula, A Comedy of Terrors will welcome Broadway regular Taylor Trensch from December 27 – January 2, with Andrew Keenan Bolger returning for the final week of its Off-Broadway run ending January 7. The limited run of Dracula, A Comedy of Terrors began performances September 4th, 2023.
Trensch will be stepping into the role of Harker (and others), a role originated by Andrew Keenan Bolger. The current cast also includes Jordan Boatman, Arnie Burton, James Daly , Ellen Harvey, and Andrew Keenan-Bolger. The company understudies are Kaitlyn Boyer and Sean-Michael Wilkinson.
Trensch was last seen on the New York stage in the Lincoln Center revival of Camelot as Mordred. Trensch has also been seen in roles such as Evan Hansen in Dear Evan Hansen and Barnaby Tucker in the original cast of the 2017 Bette Midler helmed revival of Hello, Dolly!.
In Dracula, A Comedy of Terrors, Bram Stoker’s horror classic gets a riotous makeover in this lightning-fast comedic reimagining that celebrates goth, camp, sexuality, and the magic of live theater. This 90-minute, gender-bending, quick-change romp features a pansexual Gen Z Count Dracula in the midst of an existential crisis. When he sets his sights on the brilliant young earth scientist Lucy Westfeldt, he meets his match for the first time – as well as a slew of other colorful characters including vampire hunter Jean Van Helsing, insect connoisseur Percy Renfield and behavioral psychiatrist Wallace Westfeldt, whose British country estate doubles as a free-range mental asylum. With a cast of brilliant quick take comedians, this Dracula will make you scream... with laughter.
