Praise for The Night of Nosferatu

The Night of Nosferatu

“…a classy and, yes, often terrifying new stage adaptation that looks sure to be one of the breakout hits of this year’s Midtown International Theatre Festival.”

Martin Denton, Nytheatre.com

Just when you think you’ve seen every possible permutation of Bram Stoker’s Dracula, along comes an exciting and elegant version to reinvent the story. Such is the power of Stanton Wood’s…beautiful and haunting version…a mix of drama and storytelling…Stanton Wood has created an excellent adaptation of the Dracula legend…

Byrne Harrison, Off Off Broadway Review

“…both a worthy successor to Murnau’s film and an original response to it…Wood turns Stoker’s structural problem into a brilliant metaphor for the title character’s (after)life of “boundary crossing,” which makes him attractive to the boundary-constrained Mina.

RL Nesvet, Off Off Online.com

“The Night of Nosferatu” is a sterling example of what top-notch acting, tense direction, a creative script and low-tech theatrical tricks…can accomplish. Just ask the woman in the front row who screamed Friday night…”

Kathi Scrizzi Driscoll, Cape Cod Times

“Wood’s adaptation is ingenious- told in a Story Theatre manner, with characters narrating their own stories as they go….The simplicity works like a dream, in fact like a nightmare, giving an ominous unsettling feeling, especially in the first act.  The spookiest effects are those we can imagine for ourselves.  It’s like a dark haunted house, or being told a ghost story around a campfire.”

Duncan Pflaster, Broadway World

“It gives me great pleasure to share with you my experience with The Night of Nosferatu.  Re-imagined by playwright Stanton Wood….both challenging and fun…a crisp, modern, and all-around excellent script.”

J. Jordan, NY Theatre.com

“This Night is a delight, a fine example of how powerful live theater can be and, when things go bump in the night, just how subtly terrifying. Don’t be afraid of being made afraid: go see the prince of darkness down by the harbor in Wellfleet.”

John Watters, The Barnstable Patriot

“When the lights go down at the Wellfleet Harbor Actors Theater this month, beware, there’s a definite scare in the air. “The Night of Nosferatu,” now on stage at the harbor theater, is no light selection, in fact, it’s a heavy dish of ghoul that sends chills up the spine to tingle and titillate the imagination…”
