The Brown Derby Series always presents a goofy staged reading of a—let's say—heavily altered film script. Local producer, director, and comedic actor Ian Bell has been running it for years, and the show has developed a strong cult following. This time he's taking on Francis Ford Coppola's film adaptation of Bram Stoker's famous epistolary novel, both canonical pieces of goth culture that are ripe for parody. I don't know who's going to play Gary Oldman as Count Dracula, but if they don't wear that powdered, butt-shaped wig with the psychotic rat-tail I'm going to be pissed. And will the actor in the role as Keanu-Reeves-playing-Keanu-Reeves-with-a-slightly-English-accent be able to nail it? There's no way this isn't going to be a good time.
