Dracula, LA Theatre Works
Bram Stoker's novel of 1897, Dracula, was published with little fanfare. Despite initial critical praise, audiences didn't flock to this otherworldly tale until the early-mid 1900s, when film versions generated enormous praise for the title. In Charles Morey's acclaimed adaptation, Count Dracula escapes Transylvania and slips quietly into Victorian London. The city seems helpless against his frightful power, and only one man, the smart and resourceful Dr. Van Helsing, can stop the carnage. But to do this, he must uncover the vampire's lair and pierce Dracula's heart with a wooden stake?setting up an epic confrontation of good vs evil. See this gothic horror classic brought to life by America's premier radio theater company, LA Theatre Works. An LATW performance is immediate, spontaneous, and features a first-rate cast, live sound effects, and a connection to the audience rarely felt in a traditional theater setting. This theater... is an event.
Rome to Oberammergau, Stan Walsh
In the hills of Bavaria, Germany, the village of Oberammergau is our destination. Since the Middle Ages pilgrims have trekked here to witness the now-famous folk drama called 'The Passion Play', which depicts the final days of Jesus. It was first performed in 1633 by the villagers to hopefully exempt them from the plague that was ravishing Europe. The village was only mildly infected and thus they vowed to present the drama every decade. Our journey with 36 modern pilgrims begins in Rome. It is a joyful, spiritual road trip via Assisi, Florence, Pisa, Venice, Lucerne and Munich to Oberammergau. We also learn the inside story of this famous village.
