Dracula's Cabaret : Resurrection

✭✭✭✭

Dracula’s Cabaret - Resurrection and it’s 5 piece horror-clad cast offer a selection of the venue’s favourite acts over the past 10 years in a vampire-themed evening that will you leave you both entertained and wary of what lurks in the shadows.
 
Packed full of mischief from the word go, the spectacle begins whilst you queue to enter. The hosts guide you into an otherworldly realm and to the bottom of a grave before leading onto a ghost train ride. In the hope that the ride was ironically funny, this first part lacks a certain fear factor yet is quickly over as you are greeted with a glass of champagne and taken through to a three course meal set against the backdrop of live music and the large stage.
 
Following a delicious selection of food and excellent service, the complete show features a number of solo and group performances that are lively and funny. Expect lights, props, conversations with the audience and a lot of vampire teeth in this fast paced and energetic revamped cabaret. Stealing the show as both the most unusual and surprising act would be the singing sperm which, without giving too much away, uses clever UV lights and huge blow up props to provide a dazzling ending in every sense of the word.
 
The slapstick and occasionally gaudy nature of this show does not however outshine the clear charisma of the performers. Host Stewart Reeve’s phenomenal rendition of a David Bowie classic is just one of many highlights that expose the fantastic singing, dancing and heel-wearing talents of the entire team. Alongside their level of energy, an excellent rapport between performers adds to the quality of the show - they have fun with their act, and so too does the audience.  
 
Dracula’s Cabaret lures you into a spine-tingling vaudeville world that is brash, energetic and delightfully trashy. Filled to the brim with cheesy humour, this show is perfect for an audience that don’t take comedy too seriously and is looking for a great spectacle. Literally out of this world, you will not see anything else like it at MICF.
