Risks and challenges

I once read that "the only thing worse for vampires than the sun is the bright lights of Broadway." It's true, vampire musicals don't have the best history of success. Until now. We are facing years of pre-conceived notions about vampire musicals and we are planning to tear them down one by one.

Add to that the fact that we are a new company producing a new musical. We will definitely have our fair share of challenges ahead of us but the team we have assembled are well seasoned professionals with decades of combined theatrical experience. Together, with your help we will raise the stakes on musical comedy.
