Floating Worlds: The Letters of Edward Gorey and Peter F. Neumeyer

In 1977 Frank Langella starred on Broadway in a production commonly referred to as “Edward Gorey’s Dracula”. It used the same script performed by Bela Lugosi in the 1920s but with designs by the gothic illustrator. The sets looked like one of Gorey’s drawings - sketched in black and white. The costumes were in black and white with the exception of the lining of Dracula’s cape. The show was not played for laughs and Langella conjured up a very sexy vampire. I saw a performance and it was terrific. Afterwards I happened to be in the right place to get Langella’s autograph. Langella later starred in a Universal remake of the original movie. He was fine but without the stylized designs, it was rather mundane.

Performer: Frank Langella
