“Dracula’s Taste Test” — A Fun Change of Pace

Jeff Sumner is ‘Creep’ in “Dracula’s Taste Test” (HFF18)

By Ernest Kearney  —  Dracula’s Taste Test is no great shakes, but neither does it hold itself up as anything else.

Essentially a variety show featuring Dracula (Marz Richards who also produces) the whole thing is an enjoyable lark of silly guest monsters with Jeff Sumner as the “creep” being the stand out.

A silly, fun, underhanded pitch production that engages the audience with silly jokes and amiable sing-alongs with the Phantom, Ryan Johnson keeping the evening in tune.


So, if you want to just kick back after an overload of Fringe Sturm und Drang this may be the show for you.

A BRONZE MEDAL, but a very high one.

An award-winning L.A. playwright and rabble-rouser of note who has hoisted glasses with Orson Welles, been arrested on three continents and once beat up Charlie Manson. His first play, "Among the Vipers" was a semi-finalist in the Julie Harris Playwriting Competition and was featured in the Carnegie-Mellon Showcase of New Plays. It was produced at the NPT Theater in Ashland, Oregon and Los Angeles’ celebrated Odyssey Ensemble Theatre. His following play, “The Little Boy Who Loved Monsters” was produced at The Hollywood Actors Theater, where he earned praise from the Los Angeles Times for his “…inordinately creative writing.” The play went on to numerous other productions including Berlin’s The Black Theatre under the direction of Rainer Fassbinder who wrote in his program notes of Kearney, “He is a skilled playwright, but more importantly he is a dangerous one.” Ernest Kearney has worked as literary manager or as dramaturge for among others The Hudson Theater Guild, Nova Diem and the Odyssey Ensemble Theatre, where he still serves on the play selection committee. He has been the recipient of two Dramalogue Awards and a finalist or semi-finalist, three times, in the Julie Harris Playwriting Competition. His work has been performed by Michael Dunn, Sandra Tsing Loh, Jack Colvin and Billy Bob Thornton, and to date, either as playwright or director, he has upwards of a hundred and thirty productions under his belt, including a few at the Bob Baker Marionette Theater as puppeteer. Kearney remains focused on his writing, as well as living happily ever after with his lovely wife Marlene. His stage reviews and social essays can be found at TheTVolution.com and workingauthor.com.
