You think you know Dracula? Think again. In Texas Repertory Theatres new production, the king of vampires is equal parts horror and humor, suspense and seduction. What Stephen Dietz has done is to go back to the way the book was written, says Steven Fenley, the plays director. If you read Bram Stokers novel, its all told in journal entries and news reports and little pieces, and youre asked to put the story together in your mind; and Dietz has really captured that. Theres something thats pure evil about [Dracula], and then theres something thats a little sad about him. Its a monster of a play. See Dracula at 8 p.m. Fridays and Saturdays, 7 p.m. Thursdays, and 3 p.m. Sundays. 14243 Stuebner Airline Road. Through November 11. For tickets and information, call 281-583-7573 or visit www.texreptheatre.org. $20 to $40.
Oct. 24-25, 7 p.m.; Thursdays-Sundays. Starts: Oct. 24. Continues through Nov. 11, 2007
