DRACULA MUSICAL REVIEW

from a recent issue of WHAT'S ON STAGE - The UK Theatre Magazine :

"Evita started as a concept album. Why not Dracula? This 70 minute CD has already gathered a battalion of fans (or should they be fangs?). It's a powerful new Gothic musical that remains faithful to the original novel and has enough dramatic bite to keep you listening well beyond moonrise.

With music by Christopher J. Orton and Lyrics by Gareth Evans, the songs deliver just the right measure of dramatic passion to get the blood pumping. And when you've got one hell of a vocalist like Les Miserables stalwart Michael McCarthy hitting all the right notes in the title role, something really does begin to quiver on the side of the neck. First the concept. Then the concert? Next, the West End?"

DRACULA CONCEPT ALBUM - Latest Customer Reviews:

And the positive reviews and comments keep pouring in for the only sung-through Dracula musical of Bram Stoker's novel...

"With a stunning orchestra and stellar lyrics, Evans and Orton have composed a masterpiece. Closely following the book, their rendition returns to Count Dracula what society has so horrifically stolen from him. Michael McCarthy excells as the chilling and sensual lead role. Songs such as "I Am Condemned," "Within My World," and "Never to Die" allow listeners to see a full range of emotion and power. A beautiful, inspired recording, Dracula gives you chills every time you hear it."
(From Amazon)

"Beautiful, moving and inspired"
(From iTunes)

"Fantastic musical. I am a lyricist and librettist and I can really appreciate good work. This is Broadway quality all the way!"
(From CD Baby)

"Great score and moving libretto
Exceptional musical work...an outstanding recording"

(From CD Baby)

"Geniuses Gareth Evans and Christopher J. Orton composed a musical adaptation of Dracula–in English! I’ve spent the whole day listening to it, and it’s love. (I love Dracula and Renfield...) Michael McCarthy makes for a stellar Vlad."
(From A Writers Corner)

"Dracula? Really? Truly? WOW! I love the book and I never knew it was a musical until about five minutes ago and now I'm buying it and OH MY GOD! Wow. I listened to the previews and the voices and melodies are absolutely beautiful and heart-wrenching…BUY THIS!"
(From iTunes)

"Dark, Moody & Romantic... What's not to love?? The songs from this show paint a rich picture of a classic tale of immortal love turned obsession. The songs are heartfelt, the music is dramatic and the singers are passionate. My top 3 songs would be: I Am Condemned, Never to Die and Those Dreams of long ago. You will love this musical!"
(From iTunes)

Surprisingly Good! Wasn't sure what to expect from this musical version of Dracula... but it's actually very good! The music is very passionate and the cast excellently suited for their roles. Favorite song ~ "In Your Eyes"
(From iTunes)

"I've simply fallen in love with the music. "

"SUCH BEAUTIFUL MUSIC!"
