Oooh, I Love the Legitimate Theater.
A certain mystery blogger was generous enough to bring me along to a preview performance of Dracula, the Musical
. While protocol states I shouldn't pass critical judgment on a preview performance, it might be okay to say that by far the most entertaining part came midway through the second act, when one of the actors was attempting to make his entrance. Unfortunately for him, the door was either stuck or had been accidentally locked, so after spending about 15 seconds rattling the doorknob, he eventually decided to just walk around
the doorframe; the audience was, of course, thrilled, especially when the rest of the actors later exited the scene the same way.
The rest of the show was obviously a bit of an anticlimax.
