Part-vaudeville, part-cabaret, part-blood-bath.

About

Presented by Virginia Hyam Productions and Griffin Independent

Part-vaudeville, part-cabaret, part-blood-bath, Nosferatutu is a musical meditation on art, beauty and solitude through the ages, in an orgy of bloodletting.

A ballet is about to begin. Backstage the dancer stretches. An usher closes the door and the lights make their slow descent to darkness. The air is electric, and the audience – hungry for show. The applause begins, and somewhere near the front, clapping so hard his hands hurt, is a vampire.

From the minds and mouths of multi-award winning raconteurs Sheridan Harbridge and Tommy Bradson, Nosferatutu is an outrageous and wild ride across the most sublime arias in history, gargled through a cocktail of human haematoma.

Reviews

Nosferatutu is just the kind of silly, madcap fun a dramaphile needs…On one level it’s nonsense and hijinks, on another it’s deconstructing theatre, the vampire and dance genres, storytelling, even gender. If you have a sacred cow, the show wants to slay it (and drink its blood).” Dee Jefferson, Time Out

“On stage, Bradson is an enchanting performer, a Frankenstein monster assembled from our memories of Rowan Atkinson and Marc Almond at their respective best. He wields a kind of magic that is bizarre and confusing, but mostly, it is transportative, taking us effortlessly away to, well, anywhere else but here.” Suzy Wrong, Suzy Goes See

“Whey-faced, eyes picked out in kohl, and fitted with needle-like fangs, Bradson creates a compelling tragic-comic figure in Kevin, whose neurotic monologing comes at you with the force of a fire hose.” Jason Blake, Eights Nights a Week

“Bradson is a revelation of character, song and improvisational talent…Harbridge demonstrates spectacular talent for roping in the unexpected, and the more finessed components of physical comedy.” Brodie Paparella, Broadway World

This Friday the 13th, we decided to turn the supposedly unluckiest day upside-down, and offer one punter a double pass to any 2017 Griffin Main Season production in the funnest way we could think of: a dress-up competition. Fags, blood, zombies or ghouls,...
