This brought me back to the days when vampires, and dressing like vampires, were cool (no really, there was a time like that!). This production really worked with me because I’ve seen those people. I’ve seen the “Vampire groupies” and I’ve seen the “Vampires” due to working at a certain store in the mall while growing up as well as going to the same clubs as them. As soon as I walked in, I heard Joy Division, Siouxsie, Bauhaus, etc. The soundtrack is perfect for this show. I was having such fun watching this. Seeing Brenda (played by Carrie Bell-Hoerth) want something so badly that she’s willing to give everything up, including her family and best friend, was funny, but also heartbreaking.

So You Want to be a Vampire is a comic delight. Despite dark themes, the show is light and the laughs never stop. Reminiscent of some of my favorite 80’s horror comedies, this show is just plain fun and I can’t recommend it enough. It would make a refreshing nightcap to anyone’s evening of Fringe shows.

I just felt bored by this when all was done. It wasn't good or bad or even indifferent for me. It was just...a thing that happened and I saw it and there we are.... full review
