As part of the 7 PM event the performers will be joined by Wildhorn and Black, who will discuss the musical that played the Belasco Theatre in 2004. The 15-track studio album, which was released June 6, features Lewis, Shindle, Barbour and Evan, as well as Lauren Kennedy and Euan Morton. The Broadway company is not represented on the disc.

The Upper East Side Barnes and Noble is located at Lexington Avenue and 86th Street.

Billed as "the concept recording," it includes four new songs that were written but never used in the short-lived 2004 Broadway production. The orchestrations (by Jeremy Roberts, who conducts the Valhalla Symphonia) are also new since Broadway. No one from the Broadway cast is heard on the Dracula disc, but Broadway stars James Barbour, Kate Shindle, Lauren Kennedy, Rob Evan, Norm Lewis and Euan Morton contributed to it.

The Dracula track listing includes:

1. Prologue/Over Whitby Bay
2. Fresh Blood
3. The Mist
4. A Perfect Life
5. The Master's Song
6. Loving You Keeps Me Alive
7. Life After Life
8. Mina's Cry (instrumental)
9. Please Don't Make Me Love You
10. Before The Summer Ends
11. The Heart Is Slow To Learn
12. Deep In The Darkest Night
13. The Longer I Live
14. At Last
15. Finale: There's Always a Tomorrow
