Holly's Horrorland. Here is my contribution to the night's festivities:
Edward Gorey's Dracula
Edward Gorey designed the costumes and sets for the Broadway production of Dracula, which opened on October 20, 1977, at the Martin Beck Theatre, and ran until January 6, 1980. The stunning sets recreated Gorey's trademark black and white cross-hatched illustrative style with just the occasional touch of red. *swoon*
Frank Langella (above) was the first actor to play Count Dracula in this production.
Frank Langella went on to star as the Count again in the 1979 film version of the play, directed by John Badham. The film also starred Laurence Olivier, Donald Pleasance, and Kate Nelligan.
I've made up a montage (above) of the character artwork in the Gorey illustrated edition of Dracula.
Thank you for joining me here and please do fly on over to Holly's Horrorland to mingle with the other soiree guests. You'll have a bloody good time!
