    • Event Name: Dragula: The Musical
      Article: Theatre Downtown's 'Dragula! The Musical' an original take on the Bram Stoker classic (video)
      Birmingham News - Nov 05, 2012

      Turns out Bram Stoker just wasn’t any fun at all.

      If he had had any kind of sense of humor, Count Dracula would have been a drag queen, Jonathan Harker would have fallen under her spell, and Van Helsing would have been a hoot.

      People forget that, in the course of a career defined almost from the beginning by being a genre chameleon, David Bowie started out as a true-believing, Dylan-worshipping hippie. By the time of Nixon’s resignation, however, it was evident that the Flower Power ideals Bowie and his ilk had held so dear were in fact a supernova; by the time they could be appreciated, they were already long gone. Bowie grew embittered as the rot set in during the long garish hangover of the 1970s, couching his antipathy toward the modern world in the bouncy but heartless “plastic soul” of songs like “Young Americans,” which, like T.S. Eliot’s The Waste Land, used bad sex and domestic dysfunction as metaphors for the decay of a dream. Collapse
