Dracula – Theater

October 13 @ 7:00 pm November 6 @ 2:00 pm

Synetic Theater reawakens one of the most acclaimed stories in history, Bram Stoker’s “Dracula,” from October 13 through November 6. The iconic and sinister tale of Vlad the Impaler’s descent into darkness returns to the theater for a third remount. The sensuous and terrifying thriller arrives just in time for Halloween. With blood-sucking temptresses and creeping mists sure to send a chill up your spine, Stoker’s classic 1897 tale rises again. Director Paata Tsikurishvili’s vision comes to life in this dark and menacing piece.

Familiar names flood the cast list for this American gothic horror story. Dan Istrate – a Romanian-American actor born near Transylvania – reprises his 2009 role as the notorious Count Dracula. Company members Philip Fletcher and Irakli Kadsadve retake Synetic’s stage as Holmwood and Renfield alongside a number of Synetic first timers. The updated production will once again feature Irina Tsikurishvili’s dazzling choreography critics have referred to as “lush” and “delightfully stimulating.” 

Recognized worldwide, Stoker’s Dracula has stood the test of time in countless renditions. Synetic’s bold adaptation has been hailed “fevered” and “envelopingly erotic” by The Washington Times and praised as “original, engrossing… and frightening” by audiences. Marking its third remount, the production first premiered at Rosslyn Spectrum Theater in 2005 and returned in 2009. After lying dormant for 13 years, Synetic’s Dracula comes back to life this fall.

The play will be performed at the Synetic Theater located at 1800 S Bell Street in Arlington, VA. Box Office: 703 824 8060 x 117. For tickets and additional information, please visit: https://synetictheater.org/event_pages/dracula/
