"Dracula" from Count Dracula

Original Costume Designer: Edward Gorey (Tony Award® Winner)
Bear Costume Designer: John David Ridge (Original Costume Supervisor) with The Assistance Of Paul Huntley (Wig) And Martin Izquierdo (Shoes)

Playing the title role in Dracula, Frank Langella was a symphony in black. Like the original, his counterpart here wears a black velvet tuxedo. Notice the vest with black satin lapels and buttons, and the slightly macabre touch of a watch chain fashioned from beads and very small teeth. Black satin also forms the stock around his throat over a pale gray, high-collared shirt. Of course, black velvet is the fabric-of-choice for his flowing cape with its high-flared collar and blood-red lining. Black leather shoes and a sleek brunette wig complete the sexy, elegant, and very dangerous picture.
