The Best And Worst Vampire Musical Ever Made
I love exposing forgotten pop culture to the masses, especially when it includes vampires.
It’s a truth universally acknowledged that vampires and musicals don’t mix. Broadway has a surprisingly rich history of vampire musicals crashing and burning in a spectacular fashion, both critically and commercially. For whatever reason, people just don’t seem to connect with the concept, even as vampire fiction has remained an enduring favorite for audiences the world over. There was a Dracula musical that came and went without a second thought, and a notoriously bad musical version of Anne Rice’s The Vampire Chronicles called Lestat, with music by Elton John, that closed after a month. The biggest vampire musical flop, however, is a far more curious affair.
