Vampire shows don't have a great track record lately, as the blessedly short Broadway runs of Dance of the Vampires, Lestat and Dracula attest. But this one, co-written by director Gordon Greenberg and Steve Rosen, may have better luck: It takes a wild comedic approach to the material. James Daly plays the Count, who is now a pansexual zoomer; the supporting cast comprises Arnie Burton, Ellen Harvey, Jordan Boatman and the appropriately ageless Andrew Keenan-Bolger.
Eleven shows make up the fall Broadway season in 2023, which is slightly less than usual. But as all theater fans know, there's more to New York City's stage scene than the bright lights of Broadway. Many of the city's most thrilling productions happen beyond Times Square, in the wide realm known as Off Broadway—and that's certainly looking to be the case again this year. But how can you choose what to see? We can help. We've sifted through dozens of upcoming Off Broadway shows set to open this fall and chosen 25 that strike us especially promising, from new musicals to trenchant dramas and revivals of the classics. Here, in order of when the shows start, is our 2023 Off Broadway fall preview.
