    Story

    Dracula begins with the journal of Jonathan Harker, a young solicitor on the way to Transylvania to give information to the mysterious Count Dracula about his new estate in London. Dracula takes the young man prisoner, and Jonathan sees many strange and evil things in the castle before escaping and fleeing into the night. He later decides that he must have been mad.

    Story

    I'm writing this as a fan of classics (rather than, say, horror genre). First, on performance: I normally don't like multi-voice or dramatized performances. This one is an exception. The style of writing lends itself very well to the format, and the production was extremely well done. Probably the only time I'll ever give 5-stars for performance to a multi-reader production.

    The story is OK. As with many classics where one has some notions based on movies and modern interpretations, it's not the same as one might expect going in. I'm OK with that, and I expect that. But where something like Frankenstein turned out to be way better than typical movie re-creations, I found this lacking. Admittedly it's mostly that the pace and style are just slow compared to what a modern audience would expect.

    The story is told mostly in the form of diary entries. It's reasonably well done for what it is, and the style is good for telling the story, but there's just not really that much overall story there to tell.
