Bram Stoker's novel of 1897, "Dracula," was published with little popular fanfare. Critics, however, praised the author and put Stoker in the category of Mary Shelley and Edgar Allan Poe. But audiences didn't flock to the tale of this otherworldly being that feeds off others to preserve eternal life, until the early-mid 1900s when film versions generated enormous press for the title. Invasion stories, during the height of British colonialism, were made popular by Rudyard Kipling, Arthur Conan Doyle and others, but Stoker's Dracula was like nothing the world had seen. This gothic horror is a classic for all time and has spawned hundreds of spin-offs in popular culture from "Twilight" to "True Blood." At McCain Auditorium in Manhattan.

VINCENT IN BRIXTON
By Nicholas Wright Winner
2003 Olivier Award for Best Play
Directed by Karen Paisley
In 1873, at the age of 20, Vincent Van Gogh rented a room in a suburb of London while he was being groomed for a career as an art dealer in his family's business. This heralded play produced by Lincoln Center traces the transforming effects of love, sex and youthful adventure on Van Gogh's still unformed talent, portraying him as he might have been and supposing a poignant affair with his landlady that might have happened.
"One of the best plays ever presented at The Royal National Theatre." - London Times
